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.
