A Hard Habit To Break

Guess what I just learned.
One space after a sentence.
One.
Really, you only need one.  Not two. I mean, not two.
I could probably lose a few pages off a manuscript by fixing that alone.  Sometimes I feel very... naive.  But I am learning. Oops. This is going to take some practice.

You're kidding. In Business Writing at the Marriot School of Business - they have etched "2" in my brain. How will I ever adjust? Of course, I'm a way better business writer than creative writer, like you. Thanks for the tip.

Cass, I think it still goes for business apps. But for book submissions, personal emails, poetry, etc., they want one. Open a book and see for yourself. Crazy.
