*Afterthought #88 – To the Point 

colorOnce again,  Brevity’s Nonfiction Blog has posted wit, wisdom, and writing advice via To the Point (!?!?!?).

Author Mark Budman shares my dislike of the exclamation point (only greater since the advent of texting) and love of the question mark. He describes the love/hate relationship with humor and eloquence and a plug for democracy.

Pretty good way to end the month.

 

*Afterthoughts are my blog version of a practice followed in some Quaker meetings. After meeting for worship ends, people continue in silence for a few more minutes during which they’re invited to share thoughts or reflect on the morning’s worship. I’ve adopted the form here for last-day-of-the-month brief reflections on headlines, quotes, books, previous posts, maybe even bumper stickers and refrigerator magnets.
