I've spent the past 25 years putting two spaces after a period. Recently, I read that you should only have one space after a period. Is that true? If so, when did it change? I have two completed manuscripts and have begun to send out queries. Am I going to have to change the spacing? I don't know that I can train myself after all these years to only use one space. I never even notice using the space bar when I type.
Thank you for all the time you spend on your blog. It has been extremely helpful to me.
Have you been doing anything else for 25 years? Miss Snark wonders how well that punctuation job pays...and are there benefits?
The correct form is extremely important, as you know (Bob). To help writers in this extremely important phase, the SFWA website has posted some guidelines. Read them. Learn them. Live them. Herewith.
