Common writing problems

Tagged from Lanie G! Once again, thank you so much for thingking of me:)

Now, I'm glad to pass this to Vicki, Lucille, Malou, Janese, Lily

Here are the rules:

~Start copy paste~Instructions

To play this game, all you must do is explain what your most common writing mistake is.
Then, simply tag 5 people for the meme.
Those 5 will, in return, tag 5 more people.
Ultimately, readers should see a tapestry of common grammar and spelling mistakes.
Therefore, anyone who feel ashamed of their errors will feel a bit more confident and secure.
Copy the person and persons' names that sent it to you and add your own at the bottom of the list.
It really helps build community.

The answers:

Shine with Grace : Mixing the word 'from' with 'form' all the time.
Trinity : I sometimes feel confused to use past tense or present tense when I share my stories.
LadyJava : Typing too fast that sometimes I miss words in between.
Genie King : I type too fast too... always end up with 'tot he'... when it should be 'to the'.
Spiff : I type too fast that I end up with sentences that have no spaceinbetween... LOL!
Nessa : Mostly grammatical mistakes... but it doesn't really bother me as long as my readers understand :)
Choc Mint Girl: Obviously grammatical error due to lack of vocabulary…but getting better and better and better…he he he…
Liza : I type too fast too that's why sometimes my spellings are wrongf... see. Lol ;) And same with Grace, mixing the word from and form at times. (I'll be posting this tag to my other
blogCecil: errors on grammar and sometimes I don’t know where to place my comma or when to use colon or semi-colon :( too.)

Nancy: I'm always trying to use every function of my fingers but can't really help but slip which resulted to pressing the wrong key most of the time.
Darlene: I always made a mistake by typing HELATH instead of HEALTH. Sometime the FOR is FOT because the R and the T are very close to each other lol! Anyway i always do mistakes when i type, everybody does i guess no matter how good you are in typing you always make some mistakes.Bisdak Footprints I usually have wrong typo when I am in a hurry typing entries during PPP time because need to be fast so I can grab as many opps as I can.For that,wrong typo making my english look worse to others.They read it before I can do some editing..they might think my english is so bad..ahhermmm...but i edit it anyways...
Twerlermz : I'm using basic or simple english most of the time so i think my most common mistakes are : redundancy, spelling and grammar (toink!)
Thira: I type too fast too, sometimes my mind is way ahead with my typing so I miss out and misspell words and I have to go back and read again and correct it. Sometimes using the past and present tense in writing, and using the hyphen properly,wehehe:)
Juliana: I always mis-spell "you". More often that not I type it as "oyu" because I'm typing fast and because it's a three letter word, it's prone to get typed incorrectly. It's good there's a spelling checker hehe, I always catch the mistake before it is published.
Teebob : If I write an article about a male person I often use her or she instead of him or he.
Norm : Sometimes I'm confused of the grammar and right spelling. Then I'm typing so fast that usually miss-spell taht instead of that and many more. , I dont know how to put my link just my name on it so pardon me..maybe you could help me this. Anyway, my common mistake is my grammar, spelling specially if I'm writing. I dont usually spending time to read the direction just answer the guestion quick. My son got this bad habit that I want to break because its a big mistake even I until now I still do. I don't like reading a lot of article. I only ready when it is very interesting not boring.
Amy : Sometimes confused with spelling and grammatical problems.. I used to write words like ( freinds) instead of friends & words receive instead of recieve. lol* And besides, it's not that easy most particularly if your living in a french spoken country.
