Affect vs. Effect...Led vs. Lead

Do you stumble over which word to use?
Its or it’s. There, their, or they’re?
Then, you’re simply like the rest of us. Each of us has a word or words that trip us up from time to time.
He gave it to Bonnie and me. He gave it to Bonnie and I?

There are no excuses with the net for us not to look them up and correct them before submitting our manuscripts. If it’s worth writing, it’s worth writing right!


  1. He gave it to Bonnie and me. If you cross out Bonnie, it makes more sense than "he gave it to I." That's how I remember that one.

    Well said, Linda!

  2. Nice blog page, Linda~

    It's nice to see Rose has her book published...thank you for sharing so
    we can send congratulations.

    Thanks too for the great looking simple fudge recipe. My most favorite eating sin, and this looks similar to the one on the back of the Hershey's cocoa box. :)

    Merry Christmas~
