The writing biz: Use of exclamation points!!!

I remember when I was going to college and was advised many many times to use exclamation points sparingly or perhaps not at all.

Instead, use your words and syntax to convey alarming things!

But I always really liked the exclamation point!

Back in fashion!


Still, this seemed like biblical scripture or something and so I avoided using the exclamation point for years!

However, now I see that the exclamation point is coming back into use. It’s ok again. I’m no longer scared of it!

I love it in fact!!!ย Be still grammar police!!!!!!


  1. I delete and add them all the time!!! I don’t want people to think I am screaming at them but sometimes it is necessary to get the point across with feelings of excitement or frustration so I use them but sparingly.
