Today is National Punctuation Day( Remember to celebrate by doing some of the fun things suggested on their web page.

Punctuation is a writer's friend, and you need to learn how to use it properly. There are plenty of web sites available, not to mention great books dedicated to the proper use of punctuation.

Happy writing.


  1. Punctuation can be a writer's friend or, if diesrespected, the gatekeeper barring entrance to the realm of publication ^_& I enjoy nit-picking grammatical foibles, even if appearing at times to be engaged in a surgical procedure (the cartoon posted wit semicolons).

    Hope you caught a lot of dangling participles misquoted today.

    Keep Writing!

  2. Hi Kate, thanks for stopping by. I agree punctuation if misused can keep a writer from publication.
