I have been working on a piece of writing to submit to this summer’s issue of The Pillow Fort Magazine and I hesitated before using an exclamation point in the piece because I really do think they are overused. Luckily, I was enlightened recently to a new invention of sorts, the contained exclamation point [!]. See here for more information.
P.S. A final final edit of this book is taking place this weekend and soon after it will be Kindle accessible! THAT sentence deserved a FULL explanation point.
