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...
