  • Does a spelling mistake ruin an entire poem?

    Hello there I'm John,

    Perhaps this type of question is uncommon but I would like to inform that I made a spelling mistake in a poem through overconfidence in my spelling capabilities. I didn't do a spelling check and I never did one before. This poem was an assignment. But it seems that in the entire poem there is only one spelling mistake and it's that I wrote fullfillment and not fulfillment because I wrote as I thought it was spoken. One "l" too much. Im wondering with much unease, is my poem now not to be taken seriously anymore?

    If it's just one spelling mistake, then it shouldn't put a major impact to your work, especially if it's for a word that is commonly misspelled (and even I get that word wrong, so it's natural). If it was littered with mistakes plus fragmented grammer then that's a different story. Don't ever put yourself down just because of one little mistake, seriously. Even I learned this myself.

      Writers should be cautious about spelling mistakes while writing essays. A single spelling mistake can have a huge impact on one’s writing. Before submitting any paper, it’s important to proof-read content thoroughly for any error. For UK essay services go online.
