Trouble Right Here in Homophone City

Dear Editor,
I hope you'll take a peak at my new manuscript "Barley Bear Lays an Egg."
I'm submitting to you under the advise of [name redacted]. My manuscritp is about how their is a time for loss and a time for happiness and how we have to go on and be happy. But Barley bear can't except this--or can he?
I will be happy to hear from you by post.

Are you sure I can't emale you?

Barley Bear isn't all that laid an egg.

Careful if the author wants you to "bare" with him.

Is this reel or (as posted above) write?

If I were you I'd cheque them in and go over there righting kneads as well as there reeding hobits.

How funny! Absolute failure of our education system? Victim of the way we now teach writing? No. Careless people of all ages have been making these same dumb mistakes for years. It used to be (a couple of centuries ago) that people didn't always have access to print. No excuse any longer.

How embarrassing for the blogger if she/he reads these posts :(

I'm not mean like that. Examples of what not to do have been tweaked enough to avoid causing anyone irreparable chagrin.
