I want to make people laugh, cry, shout, smile, frown, and overall...enjoy reading.
Jeanette, that's so true, and when the writer doesn't want to take the time or skill to make a decent sentence. Em dashes are even worse. I found so many in my book, I actually had my publisher reissue the book so i could take out the majority. The other thing most writers misuese is the ellipses . . . of course not me. lol
I forgot to give you my blogsite.http://firstname.lastname@example.orgMy best stories are in the older posts--been too busy to do much on my blog lately although not as short on words as you lol.
Thank you for the hints, Jeanette. It's always important to pay attention to punctuation, and other small details.
