Missing some punctuation, much?

With the advent of making twitter posts DOUBLE what they used to be, I've noticed that more and more people are ignoring punctuation.  I'm seeing periods just ignored, most of the time.  Here's an example:

Bob wasn't stupid he knew Jane didn't love him he just didn't care.

I THINK the author meant to write:

Bob wasn't stupid.  He knew Jane didn't love him.  He just didn't care.

I see whole paragraphs written with not a period at all.

What's up with people?  Missing punctuation can change the entire meaning of the sentence.  Here's an example, from Let’s eat Grandma! How to use, and not use the comma

These have two different meanings:
Let's eat, Grandma.
Let's eat Grandma.

Are you inviting her to eat or are you a cannibal with Grandma on the menu?

It's the same thing with periods.  Lack of a period can mean changing the entire meaning.

We went out to the car whose sunglasses were tinted.

is much different than:

We went out to the car.  Whose sunglasses were tinted?

So please, for the love of people who like to read, use punctuation.  It may change someone's life.

Thank you!

How to Get Out of a Slump

I've been in a slump for the past two months.  Between the holidays and a few time distractions (like watching Twitter), it's been tough to concentrate on anything anymore.

So how do I get out of that slump?  Schedule time for every moment of the day.  Give myself time to read over Twitter, but only for a short period of time. 

Has that happened to you, where you just can't focus?  Keep your goals in mind and know that you CAN do it.  If I can write 59 books, you certainly can do whatever you put your mind to.

Have a super week!
