Sometimes a writer has questions to ask, and the best people to answer those questions are friends, writers and readers, like you! Fishing for Answers is where I will ask for your advice and thoughts concerning everything from writing, story creating, to publishing and author life. Pretty much anything!
My question for this post is about this sentence:
“The lords and ladies gathered into the ballroom.”
I have come across several sources that say “lords” and “ladies” in sentences, like this one, do not need to be capitalized. But there are others that would say they should be capitalized. It might simply come down to what the writer’s preference is, but I would like to hear your thoughts about it.
Would you capitalize “lords” and “ladies” here? Why, or why not?
