Are you up for a challenge? If so, here’s what I propose: today — in honour of National Punctuation Day — use as many different punctuation marks as you can! It’s not as hard as is sounds … All you have to do is be creative; take a break from your normal, safe, dull punctuation. Then, if anyone asks why your writing is so much livelier today, tell just them: “Because I was brave enough to take up Ingrid’s challenge”.
