Fun with Misused Homophones

Homophones are words that sound the same but are spelled differently. For today's writing prompt, write a short scene or story that uses homophones. Use the following list for inspiration. The challenge is to use all forms of the word(s) you choose within the piece you write. 
  • Grate/great
  • Compliment/complement
  • There/their/they're
  • Except/accept
  • Affect/effect
  • Conscious/conscience
  • Lead/led 

This isn't a complete list by any means, but enough to have fun as you "play" with words.  

For those who want to improve their writing, take advantage of a Special Session of F2K: Fiction Writing for the New Millennium for only $10. F2K is the most popular creative writing course on the Internet, and this session offers a free 60-day membership to Writer's Village University. If you sign up be sure to take part in the author chat schedule with your truly on June 5.
