How do you keep straight to use either affect or effect?


I have such a problem with these! I am not too sure others use them right always either so I thought someone may have a way that would be simple and easy to remember. In 20 words or less. Just kidding.

    I like your little poem, Meg. Since "effect" is rarely used as a participle, it is a good way to remember.

    Thanks Venkatachari! That is what I was looking for; I could only remember effect had to do with physical but none of the detail. That will make it easier!
