Wirtten, etc. (for Written, etc.)

Writers, while they self-evidently can write, can not always spell, or type, or write very well. And, of course, we all make typos. Yeah. Gimme a T. Gimme a Y. Gimme a P.... OK, where was I? Let's see, there are 23 instances of Wirtten in OhioLINK and nine of Wirter*. So let's all rite this wrong and let the moving finger that writes move on. (Non-writers often say a picture is worth a thousand words. Here is one by New Jersey artist Adams Wirt Garrett, 1908–2000, from AskART.)

I also found several hits for "writen," including this gem in the 245: "Cobra [screenplay] / writen by Sylvester Stallone."
