I Use ALL of the Above

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt, “By The Dots”…

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!

When writing, my favorite punctuation “tool(s)”(for lack of a better word)that I cannot live without are the three dots and the parenthesis.

Why? I write according to how I am feeling at that particular  moment. If I feel joy or something wonderful, I will use the exclamation point freely. That being said, there are those times when I am extremely pissed, and use all of those punctuation marks…especially if I have a serious need to say a vulgar type word in a phrase or sentence, such as :What the %&*$?, Shut the ×%#@ up, or my favorite when I am so damn fed up with people, period:
Get the %=@* out!

As you can see, nothing is off limits.
All punctuation marks are fair game.

I will leave it up to you good people to figure out what the hell I am talking about.
