Breaking all the rules...

If you've been reading me for awhile, you may notice my often improper use of apostrophes.  Or maybe I should say excessive use.  I stick 'em everywhere!  I mean, they're fun...they just kinda hang out, and hang on...where ever you want 'em to.  I like to use apostrophes.  And I can do that, you see, because my english comp professor told me that when it comes to english and writing, once you know all the rules, that is when you earn the right to break them.

Of course, that doesn't apply to fragments.  ;)

I really do overuse apostrophes myself, I`m surprised no-one has politely commented on it!  I write the way I speak, consequently there are exclaimation marks everywhere!  Without the benefit of body language it can be easy to misunderstand things in journals....hence the apostrophes..... I am with you there Dona!   Have a lovely weekend!  lol  :-)  Sandra xxx

If you haven't already, you must read Eats, Shoots, and Leaves.
I confess I had a hard time with it, but I believe it has more to do with who gave me the bok to read.
But after reading your entry here, I imagine you would get a kick out of it.
