My second helpful advice wallpaper.

Edit: This is actually somewhat of a reissue, in order to retain a consistency in the art styles between then and now. Once I get around to it, I'll be dropping the old walls into my scraps section for reference purposes.

Gwahaha, this made me grin quite widely. Especially because I often use a semi-colon.

Nice. :D It's surprising me how many comments I'm getting about people using semi-colons. I've really got to look up the rules again - I don't tend to use them for fear of this very thing.

In my case I use them when you have something to say that needs a :, but an added wait for drama and such. Or if you're going to follow up with multiple points.

Nice. I feel like there's some official rule of using a semi-colon instead of a comma followed by a conjunction. Not sure how true that is.

Maybe someday I'll find the ambition to actually look it up. :)

Well I can't come up with a good example of the spot.

HOWEVER;

I know this is one.

Truer words have not been spoken. =) Improper punctuation drives me crazy. I appreciate the nod to the semicolon; (=D) it's not given enough attention!

I usually shy away from using it, myself. To be honest, it scares me to death. I need to get, like, a semi-colon book or something. Or just one of my old grammar texts. Then I could be a semi-colon master!

Waaaay ahead of you, friend. I've mastered the semicolon (semi-colon?) and made it my friend. =) We're pretty close.

If you want a book on the super-secret techniques that will give you confidence when approaching the enigmatic semicolon, I suggest The Blair Handbook, 7th edition. It holds all the secrets to English grammar. :thumbsup:

Sounds cool. It's just been so long since high school grammar... We did 2600 or whatever number it was called. Crazy stuff.

And I'm sure you're right on the spelling. I just typed it in that way without thinking too hard about it.
