Using the Right Word

...or if that fails - one you can spell.

When I was in grade school and writing stories there were some words that I just couldn't spell. Immediately was one of them. Somewhere I have a draft of a story with the several attempts to spell "immediately" crossed out.

And finally "right away" written in.

Sometimes you have to know when to give up, too.

This story is related to pretty much nothing, it's just something I thought of when the spell checker caught a word I misspelled earlier today. How much I would have appreciated a spell checker when I was ten. Then people could have done things immediately in my stories - and not just right away.
