I have been advised by a friend that the best way to bring consistency to my writing is by following a style guide. This guide is almost a direct rip-off of Kyle’s guide.


Premise

This document will serve as The Newsprint’s unique style guide and will evolve over time.

Rules

  • Title capitalization.
  • Comma use.
  • Oxford comma: This, that, and the other thing.
  • Possessive plural: Attach a single apostrophe: The Olympus’ lens is sharp.
  • Colons: Capitalize the first letter of a complete sentence after a colon.
  • “A couple of weeks ago” becomes “A couple weeks ago”.
  • “The monthly budget that I created” becomes “The monthly budget I created”.
  • Em dash: Spaces before and after the use of an em dash: You are the friend — the only friend — to help me.
