jewel vs. The Exclamation Point

Just the title of this article resulted in a dramatic reduction of the use of exclamation points in my social media posts. Thank You!!!! 😉

However, this is my favorite point in this article:

“…but these days, the exclamation mark has become a crutch for lazy writing; a faint attempt to convey energy and excitement. Good writing can do this. Like the placement of one well-formed sentence after another with strong action verbs and witty wordplay.” A simple and profound statement.

Like what you read? Give MD a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
