I coudn't read a word until the 3rd grade. One day, I picked up a simple 'reader' and, BOOM!
It must have been overnight because one day I couldn't make heads nor tales out of words, then, the next day, not only could I read almost every word, but, I could spell words I was quite sure I had never seen before. I never became a spelling bee champion, but, I fell in love with words. This site shares some of my favorite words. Oh! By the way. I love putting some of my words into music. Thanks for visiting and I would love to hear from you.
