You may think that the word is important, but there are rules as to which words are capitalized - learn and follow these rules. I use many reference sources. One good one is - Purdue OWL

    I suggest that you read books written in English on a daily basis. Here is a list of some authors that you may want to study -

    Ernest Hemingway
    Jules Verne
    Mark Twain
    John Steinbeck
    Edgar Allen Poe
    Joseph Conrad
    Geoffrey Chaucer
    Thanks a lot for correcting my post, and for the list too
