NaNoWriMo Tips: Avoid Punctuation Police

Here is a lesson in creative writing. First rule: Do not use semicolons. They are transvestite hermaphrodites representing absolutely nothing. All they do is show you’ve been to college.
Kurt Vonnegut

This is wise advice, especially during NaNoWriMo. Don’t let the punctuation get in your way. Fussing over a comma, period, quote mark, colon, and semi-colon as you hammer out your story slows you down.

Fix all the punctuation in December. Then you can learn all about the rules and regulations of English punctuation and use it right.
