She's not heavy. She's one of my writers.

I just edited an article for my online content job. It was written by an "experienced and published" writer (according to her bio). The article was on meteorological science projects for school kids.

In the 350-word article, she consistently misspelled lightning as lightening.

The company needs to lighten its load of these writing hacks. Either that, or hope for lightning to strike some of them.
