"We should probably stick to soft drinks under this lot of old idiots..."
Argh - until, it was meant to say until.

I'm in a mess anyway, the joy of yWriter is that the spell check isn't automatic so I'm not continually prompted to fix little mistakes. The problem with that is that if you combine my poor spelling with JulNo speed typing nothing is spelt correctly

“Never again,” Martyn muttered to himself. “Never, ever, ever, ever ,ever again. Never. Never, ever, ever again. I will never agree to something like this again. No sir, never. Ever. Never, never, never, ever again. Next time I’m going in the summer. Never in the winter. Ever again. Never. I promise, Jenny. Never. Absolutely never. Ever. Never ever, ever again.”
Jenny gave him a look that plainly said “shut up.”


I agree, Jenny, I agree. *headdesk*

Last night during my big push to finish, I meant to type, "It must be fate" but it came out "It must be feet."

Then I wasted some time trying to decide if I should fix it or see where the conversation went from there.

The typos I make can be very amusing to me, but I'm not sure how much they'd amuse anyone else. One memorable mistake I made yesterday was:


Quote:
By the time they got to the bottom of the pile, the bodies were little more than bloody, maggot-infested citizens.


...I meant skeletons, of course. :rolleyes: Perhaps citizenship isn't revoked upon death, but there had just been a coup and before these people were killed I'm pretty sure the new regime stopped considering them citizens. So yeah. Wrong word.

It only amuses me because I've been conditioned to hate the word "citizen", though. Accidentally implying citizenship was equivalent to a horrifying post-death state amused me greatly. Good job, self! XD

How to make two very small typos into... I don't even know what:
Their mothers unfairnessss burns
I'm not sure how they can have multiple mothers, and... since when are my main antagonists allowed to channel Gollum?

They hvae aplan
Really? I wonder if they hvae a plan, too. Or perhaps (perlamps? Dear self, what the...) they even have aplan. Or a pan. Or, hey, revolutionary idea: have a plan.

The third of htese gods is one whose further enemity Narenen cannot afford, whosre involvement was slight, and whose improsonment would be nigh-on impossible.
The degree to which I write about Her would lead to misspelling Her name sometime, but... Narenen? Also, I'm not even going to comment on enemity, improsonment or whosre.

Naren can eel
That's... nice, dear.

(Trivia: Most of my interesting typos -- wrote that as typose, which I wrote as typoese -- are made on this keyboard, due to its inherent too-big-ness. Ah, full-sized keyboards, bane of my computer-hopping...)

Also, it's unclear, but Allen didn't realise what Warren was doing, he knew what he himself was doing. xD

By all rights I ought to have been uncomfortable as all get-out , but there wa ssomething about Seven that made me eel alike I had known her long enough to barely be afraid at all. It was very odd. "I'd guess tis would make you my partner, at leas t tuntin I know enough to make a useful someone."
In order:
1. There wa ssomething? I'm getting distinct Ugliesverse and Gollum vibes, they do not go together well.
2. Yay, Ciri can eel too! I thought that was just Naren. But no, Ciri can eel alike. Does that mean she wins? (Or is Eel Alike like Share Alike, Creative Commons?)
3. Despite your fondness for anachronisms in speech, Ciri, you are doing tis wrong. (Hahaha.)
4. You're not at leas t tuntin, you're at RANDOM HQ...

My eyes hadn't quite gotten used to the new pair of glasses that C will have to poit out are either unfamiliar because they're from Ops or I brought htem from home and they're just recent, I don't know, and I could see each individual hair in the pony-tail she wore tossed over her shoulder.
Ignoring Poit and Htem as they are new to the typed version... Niiiice, self. Way to go. Goodbye, fourth wall, I accidentally the metafictional subplot.

My best one so far was when my MC went to see a "sneek-peak" of a movie.

I also had an "impozzible" and "contorrl" and a horrible time spelling "conspiratorial." (conspiritol >> conspiritoral >> conspiritirail >> soncprifrickinatorial...[I was getting frustrated at this point...])

Edit: And here's the sentence I just typed... "Even the smallest expressions of affection made her flow."

erm, that should be "glow." :3

Petre sighed and ruffled his daught’ers hair. “I’m fine, Tabbitha. Honest I am.”
Petre is not misspelled (it's the Romanian spelling of Peter). However, I think the apostrophe in "daughter's" is misplaced. And I think my B key went spasmoid.

He looked around the room, from Catie, still tangled up in string, to Iestyn, polishing a wooden fife, to Jerishio, sorting his rideipe cards, to Robin and Tesni, who had psralwed over a bright-colored picture book on the floor.
Who's Jerishio? And what's a rideipe? For that matter, how do you psralw? What happened to Jericho and his recipes, and Robin and Tesni sprawling on the floor?

“You haven’t forced us, Father,” said Jericho, to whom, as to oall the other children in the family, the moniker came naturally.
Oall?

I fisted my hands into fists on the counter and pressed my forehead against my thumbs, struggling to keep breathing normally and not cry.
Nice, Torin. Not only are you being a pansy, you're fisting your hands into fists. What else would you fist them into, dear?

Once I'd finished eating, M and I left the retaurant (wow, great spelling there, Torin) and he led me to a phone booth a little way down the street.
Okay, I don't think I've ever been into a retaurant. Ever. While I don't remember mocking his spelling (even though it's technically my spelling), I do rather like it. (:

"In loving memory of birthday convicted."

My friend is having her birthday in a couple of days, so my brother was asking me what I was going to do. I had a funeral scene planned, and I can't really hold a conversation while typing at the same time. I always end up typing what I hear or what I say, and this is nothing different. The TV was on (guilty or innocent? episode 6), and my brother was discussing birthday plans.

Part of her was hoping that the police presence would deter any altercations, but another part of him knew that the idea was completely insane.

Patricia is known as Patrick during the night.

(I can't even take myself seriously. Is this a bad sign?)

“Of course. How oelse can I befuddle the gourists?”
Good question. I don't even know what a gourist is--is it anything like a tourist?

Laughing, Catie grabbed the dkekc in qhestion. “All right, we’ll show syou how to play. Iestyn, gtet the igs, won’t hou?”
Darn it, I even misspelled a word I MADE UP!!!

Chapter 6:
You know what? Screw this! I don’t want to write all this boring filler right now, and sicne this is MY book and MY challenge, I can write whatever the hell I want! I’m going to jump over the ruins of the fourth wall and write the stuff I know will happen later, but that I don’t want to happen yet. It all counts towards the final word count anyway, and dammit, I’m ten thousand words behind. I will finish this damn book if it ikills me.

Fourth wall, we hardly knew ye. (Sicne?)

“Rhonda?” repeated Detective Williams indcredulously.
And this is my punishment.

“No,” Catie said imaptionetly.
Sounds like a disease.

Catie nodded. “And palm reading. And star charts. And Scyrying.”
I don't know if that's closer to skywriting or Scrying.

I’ts a muscle like anything else and it’s not one I’ve ever exercised.
Head, meet desk.

The sad thing? This is about the third time he's been mentioned. His name is neither Scott nor Tom. -Headdesk-

“So I will just pick you up tomorrow at—what did we decide on? Six or seven?” I asked, trying to recall the memory.
“Seven,” the author replied after scrolling back up the word document to check.
“Thank you, Luna,” I said. “Seven, then.

“Why don’t we lust jet everyone int? We wound’t even need a guard!” The guard spoke to himself has he opened the gates. “Why don’t we just disobey all our orers and let the world fall into complete chaols?”
first of all... lust jet?!?! um... all righty then
and wound't? um... wound not? ok... and I'm not even sure what orers are (maybe like Aurors? for you Harry Potter people) and then chaols? right...
I think I'm tired... possibly
