Actually, I don’t have a problem spelling. I did get booted out of a spelling bee in the first round back in the 5th grade, but ever since then I’ve never forgotten how to spell the word ‘journey’ (I forgot the ‘e’ - oops).

My problem comes in whilst typing. I don’t know if this is common or not, but as I’m typing I’ll sometimes start with the letter that makes the sound of the word instead of the correct letter. For example, I’ll go to type the word ‘one’, but instead of typing an ‘o’ I’ll type ‘w’. Similar problem with words that begin with ‘c’ where I will accidentally start typing an ‘s’; I’m sure there are others, but those are the biggies.

I always catch it, but it just seems somewhat weird. Am I the only one that does this? It has to be fairly common, right? Right?
