In a sentence after a full stop (period), I used to use two spaces in between to start a new sentence in the same paragraph. That’s what I learned when I took a typing course. As a legal secretary, typing long documents, in triplicate, using carbon paper with 100 percent accuracy, the double space on a full stop made the documents easier to understand and better for reading purposes. No longer doing this profession, somewhere along the line, I’ve lost the skill. From reading other writers, I noticed that they only use a single space after a full stop. And I picked up the habit.
To honor the death of Roy Hobbs, the last human to use two spaces after a complete stop, I will follow his practice. These spaces make a better emphasis at the end of a sentence.
Just like Roy, from here on forward, I will take this style seriously to my grave. Till death do us part.
