Watch your copy folks!

AP Stylebook

This is not MySpace!
Okay, you do not have to follow AP Style. I know the Internet style is conversational but that is not an excuse for bad writing! Sentences start with capital letters and end with periods, or something similarly appropriate. When you think of sentences remember, “subject, verb, object.” Spell checkers are pervasive, so use them! When in doubt, sound it out. Listen to your words as you read them out loud. Edit your copy. A person who writes wells is at a competitive advantage over someone who does not. You just look smarter when you write clearly. This is an upper division journalism class folks.
