Proofreading Course: Lesson 2/Day 1

No photo description available.

After being off-piste for 5 days, I am now swotting up on lesson 2. This involves reading around the subject as I have to fill in some gaps before I answer an online quiz. Today, I learnt that two spaces as a fullstop is considered 'archaic'. Huh. I did my degree and most of my writing the archaic way and now I have to undo that habit, which might take a while. Even typing this entry has seen me go back and alter the space differential.  Need to apply myself more - I don't know why I am dragging my feet. Fear of failure, I suppose. Will spend more time on it this evening, as it looks like Hubby wants the tv to watch what he wants to watch i.e. not the stuff I would like to watch.
