If I were ever to get a tattoo, I would have a semicolon inked somewhere special (ahem).
I know I don’t always use semicolons properly. I can admit in the quietness of the night that there are times when I have done wrong by the semicolon. But when I think of that beautiful roundness above and the curve below, there’s a flutter in my stomach, my heart races and remember all over again that I love the semicolon.
So tell me, Persephoneers, which is your favourite punctuation mark?
N.B. I do find it rather amusing that I have managed to write this without using a semicolon. But that only goes to reassure me that the semicolon is so wonderful that it shouldn’t be forced into a sentence, but instead used only when the moment is right.
