Also forward/forwards? I have no idea when you're meant to use them or if there is a difference. I was using "forwards" as a standard, but then had a crisis of confidence and started using "forward" in the same context and now I am confused and examples of it with and without the s litter my work. Almost all of them sound to me like either one is right. Been meaning to ask for a while. examples a quick search through my novel picked up: this sounds like you can only use the non-s word: but What's the difference and why?
