My client/friend, EMANIO CEO KG Charles-Harris, has been a guest poster here; he’s received several hat tips for sending links to information used in various posts and he just wracked up another one.
I’ve written before about the importance of details when writing; details like commas, periods and capitals.
But the note KG forwarded drives home the importance of capitals—unforgettably.
Miki, I received this from a friend who is an English Professor and thought you would appreciate it; it’s short and to the point.
In the world of hi-tech gadgetry, I’ve noticed that more and more people who send text messages and emails have long forgotten the art of capital letters.
For those of you who fall into this category, please take note of the following statement: “Capitalization is the difference between helping your Uncle Jack off a horse and helping your uncle jack off a horse.”
Thanks, KG; graphic word imagery does get the point across, even to teens.
