In order to promote their new book, Write It Right: The Ground Rules for Self-Editing Like the Pros, authors Dawn Josephson and Lauren Hidden have declared their support for August 22 as National Punctuation Day. According to the authors, “Most people know when to use periods, exclamation marks, and questions marks, but semicolons, colons, and quotations pose greater challenges.’
While self-editing can be troublesome, Write It Right breaks it down into five easy steps and includes examples, so readers can learn exactly what their strengths and weaknesses are. The book also goes into detail about the correct way to use punctuation marks like the serial comma, semicolon, colon and quotation marks so that you’ll always know how to write it right! — Press release
