Be alert, get it right: Conscience vs. conscious

Every Mental-health-2313428_1920writer, in conscience, should know the difference between these two words.

Conscience refers to one’s moral conduct. For example: Having to tell a lie wracked Tara’s conscience.

Conscious refers to one’s perception or awareness – hence, you can be unconscious. For example, Cheri was fully conscious of what the judge’s words meant. Or Getting hit in the head with a baseball bat knocked Samantha unconscious.

So always be conscious of when to use which one of these words!

Need an editor? Having your book, business document or academic paper proofread or edited before submitting it can prove invaluable. In an economic climate where you face heavy competition, your writing needs a second eye to give you the edge. Whether you be from a metropolis like New York City or a small town like Potts Camp, Mississippi, I can provide that second eye.
