Between the End and the Beginning

Today’s Daily Prompt:

We all have strange relationships with punctuation — do you overuse exclamation marks? Do you avoid semicolons like the plague? What type of punctuation could you never live without? Tell us all about your punctuation quirks!

I love semicolons. I do. They’re so useful and unobtrusive. They make a sentence more itself without adding bulk. They help the story flow without disruption.

But the poor things are so abused; how many people even use semicolons properly anymore?

Not enough.

Not nearly enough.
