In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “By the Dots.”
Although I am fascinated by punctuation marks, I tend to miss use some of them.
I have quite a few punctuation marks that I like using. I try my best to use them correctly. The commas are one punctuation that I try to get in the right part of a statement making sure that I do not run with the sentence making the reader go out of breath having them read on and on without a break or making sure to prevent a misunderstanding of a statement. The misunderstanding of a statement can really go bad.
I love over using exclamation!!! I enjoy over using them only when I am truly excited and want to make sure that I get the message across that I am really ecstatic over something, and hoping whoever is reading my writings, is sincerely sharing of my overly joy and join in my excitement!
Sometimes when I am writing my thoughts or a passage, I tend to interrupt myself with certain afterthoughts that although it may not be needed, or it does not necessarily pertain to the story, yet it may give a little humor, or emphasis to the writing, I will place the thought in parenthesis.
The usage of punctuation marks is so important. It helps get the message across in a clear manner.
