A word I never spell right

There’s always one, and it’s not necessarily a difficult one. For me, it’s ‘renegging’ – oops that should be ‘reneging’. As in to fail on a promise or commitment. I don’t know why I go for the double g, I suppose I see and hear words like ‘pegging’ and go by the old general rule about double consonants making a harsh sound as opposed to single consonants making a soft sound. Now that I know the correct spelling, ‘renege’ seems totally wrong for how it sounds!
