welcome to my blog

welcome to my blog

i'm Michelle Gregory, a 55-year-old wife, mom, Jesus-follower, beginning French learner, and Arizona native who moved to Montana 6 years ago (yeah--that was a huge change). i collect way too many craft supplies (and occasionally use them), spend way too much time on Instagram and Facebook, obsessively check my email, and own 2 horses, 2 dogs, and 1 very large black cat. i've been working on the sequel to my one fantasy novel for 9 years (don't you feel better now?). i haven't done anything here for a long time, but maybe jumping back into blogging will get the writer side of my brain humming again.

all of that may be more than you wanted to know, but anyway...

so, you say you're afraid of semi-colons

then have i got a website for you.

i found this link at Inkygirl comics: "How to use a semi-colon, the most feared punctuation mark on earth." even though i'm not afraid of this pesky, but useful punctuation mark, it was a good review and gave me a good laugh this morning. goodness knows we can all use a good laugh.

Oh, I love semi-colons. Love them, love them! Almsot as much as em-dashes. Yes, I am a writing nerd.

Not afraid of semi-colons, but not really a fan. They seem a little useless to me most of the time. Thanks for the link. I'll check it out. :)

Okay, after reading that, I guess their use is a little more justified. I still probably won't use them any more than I used to. Personal pet peeve, I guess.

Nice! Semi colons can be fun. I didn't know they were feared...
