How do you feel about the use of semi-colons in fiction, and how and when do you think they should be used?
I like semi-colons. They work better in literary, historical or more serious and formal fiction than they do in, say, Middle Grade, YA or very trendy fiction.
Like all punctuation, they should be used when the situation calls for them, not just for show.
