In my efforts to become a better writer, I’m reading what I can on punctuation.
I’m enjoying this so far. And I know a few people who’d love this as well, and who should be members of the APS – the Apostrophe Protection Society. Sticklers unite! 🙂
The book does not really instruct as point out the misuse and almost-death of punctuation, and why we need it alive and used properly, if only for sticklers who tend to be very violent at the sight of a misplaced or unnecessary punctuation.
This is a good preparation for the more intense book on punctuation that I’m going to be studying on later. I’m exploring writing seriously now, I really am. I’m planning out all these lessons I’m going to be filling up my time with in between work. I’m doing all those things I’ve always wanted to do. I say if not now, when? Now, then. Now.
