Okay, don’t everyone kill me at once. I have certain questions that I cant wait for my English class in the spring to have answered. 1) Is it ever appropriate to use a semicolon in a story- like setting? (I’ve used them, but it seems wrong, as though I should just use a period and end it altogether. Is this wrong?) 2) Can someone please tell me the proper way to set up dialogue? This is an example of how I’ve been doing it. “I said not to move from that spot.” He reiterated “I said not to move from that spot,” he reiterated Are any of these correct? And how would you end a duologue that ended in a question mark? 3) How far should the indentation of a paragraph recede into the paper? (One space or two or three) 4) This is the last one …for now. Where do commas go? I’ve seen people stick them any old place. Someone once told me, that if you are not good at grammar, a good method to use is to place a comma where there are natural pauses in the flow of speech. (This is a major issue in my writing, so I’d really like an answer to this one.) I have many more questions, but I suppose this will do for now.
