Don't Double Space at the End of a Sentence - here's why.

If you are a writer who still double spaces after a period, please read this post by Alice Osborn. 


In my classes I always find writers who learned in typing class to double space at the end of every sentence, but today in the computer world, we use only one space. I am asked why the change.
Alice, in a light-hearted, humorous way explains why. Check out her blog for many good tips on writing.

Went and read the post and love it! It took me forever to quit double spacing after sentences once I realized I needed to. I think I've quit-at least I hope so : )

Hi Tipper,
I know it was hard for me at first. And I have people who have written long pieces with all the double spaces at the end of sentences and they want to know if they have to type those stories over again to eliminate that extra space. Thankfully, they don't.
