Recently I’ve become aware that I’m hopelessly out of date.
It’s my two space habit. You know, two spaces after each period. I’ve done it since 7th grade when I learned to type and am having trouble breaking the habit.
More and more I see editors and publishers aghast with the double space after the end of each sentence. While many say, it’s not exactly wrong, others feel it’s an abomination.
Maybe I’ll make this my new year’s resolution. I just feel like there are so many other more important changes that I need to make.
How much do the double spaces bother you?
