I think they're great and would love to have a set. Though, I would prefer look alike pens, instead. Sharpening a pencil would shorten the words, change their meaning or leave a bunch of gibberish. There/here, their/heir, wear/ear, who/ho, that/hat, your/our. Semicolons/colons.

Could've/ould've?, would've/ould've?, should've/ould've?.

To/o, two/wo?, too/oo?.

Pens or mechanical pencils, please.

Love the red one in the middle. Needs a companion pencil to remind folks that 'alright' is also not a word, despite it neologism popularity ;) 

That might be true, but there’s no logical reason why one was sanctioned officially and the other has yet to be approved – and you know it will eventually

I used alright in a chapter and Mann gave me grief about it. He let it slide since it was in dialogue and sounded right but he still gave me grief. Now that I think about it, he does that a lot! :yes:

YAY!! Mann!!!!  He's all right!  LOL

Mann's awesome. We're a good match since my mind lives in the gutter and he's a frequent visitor. I should collect some of his editorial comments and publish them. But then he'd probably kill me and I'm not done with him yet! :P

You're thinking too much, Sandy. If they end up as stubs you can just buy another set! :D

Languages evolve. Some will resist changes in word usage the same way many resist changes in everything. Too many damn people out there are scared of standing out and prefer to meld into the background. Screw that! If I think a word fits, I'm using it and Merriam and Wbster can go pound sand.

You should check out of his pottery work. Some of it is quite exquisite. Mann's a man of many talents. He recently completed a series of mugs with 'Glamour Girls' on them and I've already placed an order for when he does the 'Muscle Bear' collection!

 

PS - he did my banner too!
