With every manuscript I open, I carry out some basic housekeeping before I start the actual editing. This includes checking for some of the most commonly misspelled words and I have a list of these printed out which I keep to hand.
As the same words crop up in the majority of the manuscripts I work on, whether from a debut author or an author on book twenty, these confusions still appear.
It’s with this in mind that I thought I would share with you my cheat sheet so you can print it out and keep it to hand if you’d like to.
I have included some of the most commonly misspelled words, words whose definitions are confused, and some of the most common homophones.
I do hope that you find this useful!
