If your character is taking a breath, or respirating, or inhaling and exhaling repeatedly, they are breathing. They are taking a moment to b-r-e-a-t-h-e.

Breathe that in for a second. Get a whiff of that.

Breathe is not spelled b-r-e-a-t-h.

When we say breathe, it sounds like "breeth." When we say breath it sounds like "breth."

I have no breath left in me to explain transitive and intransitive verbs to you, so I'll just say this:

BREATHE HAS AN E
BREATHE HAS AN E
BREATHE HAS AN E
BREATHE HAS AN E
BREATHE HAS AN E
BREATHE HAS AN E
BREATHE HAS AN E
BREATHE HAS AN E
BREATHE HAS AN E
BREATHE HAS AN E
BREATHE HAS AN E
BREATHE HAS AN E

Damn, that looks like Gaelic. Or Enochian.

BREATHE ENDS IN A FUCKING E
BREATHE ENDS IN A FUCKING E
BREATHE ENDS IN A FUCKING E
BREATHE ENDS IN A FUCKING E
BREATHE ENDS IN A FUCKING E

HAHHAHAHHAHAH

I can't tell you how many times I've seen that error. It does drive me a little nuts. Along with the your/you're, there/their, to/too/two, and the one that really drives me batty: BARE versus BEAR.

No, writers, your character can't BEAR it when something terrible happens. If he couldn't BARE it, he wouldn't be getting naked in your story right now, having sex with his partner in the scene! ARRRRGH.

LOL.

One that kills me with laughter is when a character is in an accident and ends up in a comma.

:D

Thank you for your srs bsns about wrds.

P.S. I miss you! How are you doing???
