In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “By the Dots.”
I love exclamation points! You see? It’s my personality and it’s the same reason that I love emoticons. 🙂 I can’t see you and you can not see me so I want to communicate effectively with you and to include my emotional response as well. This is especially true with comments that I make on your blogs. It is very rare for me to find a post that I don’t, in some way, appreciate and this fact must be shared with the writer!! See? I hope my enthusiasm has carried over to you as you are reading this. If you knew me in person you’d know how expressive I am. My mellow husband often quips that I’m over the top. You wouldn’t agree with him, would you? 😦
Punctuation, in general is a big challenge for me. It always has been, much to my teacher’s dismay. Finally someone said that I should listen to speech and look for pauses, stops, half stops and EXCLAMATIONs! That helped a great deal. Except for the last one in caps as I overdo that one, obviously. Please remember me in your punctuation prayers!
