    Hi Delbert, welcome to the forum. Might I suggest you start by breaking your habit of writing in text shorthand, sans caps and some punctuation? Are you posting from a mobile device? It helps to get more keyboard practice. It's pretty hard to write on a mobile device and while some older writers might still pound out work on a typewriter, and some may even use a pen and paper, you're better off with the writer's basic tool, aka a keyboard. Spellchecker and a word processor are pretty important as well.

    Welcome to the forum, Delbert. :)

    I must agree with Ginger. The habits formed from social media and mobile devices are not the easiest to break, but a concerted effort must be made. In this task you set yourself all the arguments for good grammar, spelling and punctuation, of which much jest and many memes are made on the internet, is no laughing matter. Here, it is an inarguable must. ;)

    Please have a look through the Forum Rules, and the FAQ as a start.

    Have fun! :D
