Recently, I made a post asking whether people liked to use semicolons in their writing. Many people said they don't enjoy using the semicolon in fiction, which is fair enough. Now, I was reading The Little Green Grammar Book the other day. It mentions that the dash is nice because it's more subtle than the semicolon, and it's nice to use in dialogue to signify pauses. I just wanted to hear you guys' opinions on this. Thanks heaps.
