It's like guns. You'll always find a reader who knows enough to figure out where your mistakes are.I don't see where there would be any confusion. 14'23" S 134'45" W doesn't look like anything but coordinates. If nothing else, the "S" (south) and "W" (west) give that away.

I’ve received a lot of questions about the importance of building a platform for fiction writers. Should you write platform-building pieces under your real name or the pseudonym you want to use?

Do you need to worry about blogging now to build a platform or should you just write?
