One of the best things about being engaged in a long-term writing project is the number of amusing number of typos, suggested corrections, etc. For example, so far this week:
I typed ‘encuntered’ instead of ‘encountered’. I personally think ‘encuntered’ should be a word, and I am taking recommendations for definitions of this word.
Autocorrect suggested ‘jockstrap’ when I mistyped ‘curacies’. HOW are these two words related, Autocorrect?
I typed ‘ambivalance’ instead of ‘ambivalence’, the former being a lance which can’t decide which way to go. Because jousting metaphors are so useful when one is writing practical theology, obviously.
I typed ‘tweetable’ which, thank sweet baby Jesus, isn’t really a word and my spellcheck refuses to recognise it as such. But then I decided a well-placed hyphen could not only change it into ‘tweet-able’, as intended, but also ‘twee-table’, a much more interesting concept. What makes a table twee? Also, I feel like this is a potentially excellent cryptic crossword answer.
I typed ‘bigtoed’ instead of ‘bigoted’. Make of that what you will.
After nearly freezing to death in this library because Dennis Quaid never showed up to let me know that there had been a storm created by supercooled air in the upper troposphere, I decided to go study in Anglia Ruskin’s Library for the afternoon.
Lucky me, directly outside ARU’s library building is massive construction site! Yay! Still super loud & utterly impossible to work, but at least I can switch from post-weatherpocalypse NYC to bright sunny Kimmy Schmidt NYC.
