    difficulty and difficulties

    Correct me if I'm wrong please.
    I'm constantly having difficulty using the ing-form in the right way.
    And what about "difficulties"?
    Can I also say this?

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
