April has Arrived!

Thank goodness for the arrival of April!

It has been the worst winter ever here in Calgary and we are still getting snow and lower than normal temps. But with the days getting lighter and longer now I feel a renewed energy and motivation to spring clean my office space and get things organized.

I have just moved into a new condo this past weekend and I am excited about the little nook (a space off my bedroom) where I can put my writer’s desk and laptop, and books, and more books…I am severely behind in my reading, both for pleasure and business. 

April is Poetry Month! I love poetry – and I have dabbled at writing poetry all my life. Perhaps I’ll share one or two with you this month. If you have any poetry that you want to share, please send me your prose and I’ll be posting your favourite poetry for the whole month of April.

 

Question for the Editor

Q: One space or two after a period?

A: One space between two sentences. It doesn’t matter whether the sentence ends in a period, question mark, exclamation mark, or colon.

If you have a question you would like answered, email me at wordsaremybusiness.ca@gmail.com, and I’ll be happy to answer it and may even post it on this page.

Keyboard Shortcuts for writers

Use keyboard shortcuts to cut your work dramatically. With the mouse and an infinite number of menus it often takes longer to wade through the tabs and drop-down’s to find what you are looking for.

Word is a powerful software and it has hundreds of shortcuts you can use. Tape or sticky note the ones that you use most frequently to your desk top (either your hard one or your soft one).

Format letters as small caps

CTRL+SHIFT+K
