Quixotic Rantings
Sporadic rantings, thoughts, and other things that usually spawn from boredom.
Punctuation in Poetry
Hanging out in the original poetry section has taught me that I have a new pet peeve: Punctuation.

It's interesting, I never realized how much the lack of it can throw off reading a poem. A lack of commas, periods, improper use of commas/periods, improper capitalization (assuming it's not part of the overall effect, but in most cases there seems to be no point for the lower cased letters) etc. are quite distracting.

So, I've discovered 9/10 I'm going to comment on Punctuation if reading a poem. XD Ha ha. Tis all fun, ne?

I KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN! Sorry, random, but I agree. I used to love writing poetry and never thought I needed punctuation. THEN I was taught better and now poetry with no punctuation drives me crazy.
