    “It’s the little things that make a HUGE difference.” I love this and agree 100%! Excellent video and advice!

    Yes Paul — everything leaves or makes an impression. In addition to font choice I’ve seen college essays where exclamation marks are included ad nauseam, and where text is frequently underlined or in bold print. If you have to do that much to draw attention or to try to make the content seem important — well, chances are you need to write about something else, right?

    • Paul Hemphill Says:

      Well, Kay, I would say that this student has a REAL problem. It’s not know how to write. I never allow my students to use exclamation points or superlatives because they are literary crutches for a very limping student.
