weekly writing coach: visual spell chart

The Oatmeal -- an astonishing one-man operation --takes grammatical rules and casts them into charts and visuals to aid your memory. This week, in "Stop Mispelling Thees 10 Wordz," it tackles everything from homonyms (their/they're/there) to errors caused by spacing (alot vs. a lot) or punctuation, necessary or superfluous. Scroll to the end of the post and order the poster for your office (your coach thinks taping it behind your office door might be the most subtle application). We all have our favorite recurring errors to correct. Why not use a comic approach as a reminder?
