Okay we are doing work from the texas write source skills book pages 61-70.
The directions say: write the correct word for each word in parentheses that is used incorrectly.

This is it: I will Number them . Please tell me if any are wrong. Thank you!

1(Accept) for 2(ringing)my hands nervously, I stood 3(stationery) behind the heavy velvet curtain. Each second 4(past) as slowly as an hour, but my heart beat faster 5(then) a drumroll until i thought my 6(vanes) would pop. I came up with a plan to run backstage, 7(lay) down, and send out anyone 8(beside) me to play my part.
9(Its) almost like Ms. Keadon, the director, 10(herd) what I was thinking. She wasn't about to 11(let) me alone. Before I got any 12(further), she spun me around, and firmly 13(brought) me back to my mark.
As a 14(moral) boost she whispered, "It's 15(all right). You are going to be 16(real) great. You can 16(led) this play. Now go out there and 17(brake) a leg!"
I knew she was 18(inferring) that she 19(choose) me to play the 20(principle) role in the play because she believed in me. That was quite a 21(complement), but how could I do 22(good) if I couldn't remember the first line? Why did I want this part so 23(bad) 24(anyways)? Was I under the 25(allusion) that acting was all about having fun and 26(waring) beautiful costumes? Had I forgotten how shy I am?
I panicked. Then I thought of all the hours Ms.Keadon would 27(learn) me and the other cast members our lines. I couldn't 28(dessert) them now. During every rehearsal. Ms. Keadon had treated us 29(as) professionals, and it was time I started to act 30(as) one.
