Kurt Vonnegut is a legendary science fiction writer known for his quick wit. One of my favorite quotes from him is about semicolons.

Here is a lesson in creative writing. First rule: Do not use semicolons. They are transvestite hermaphrodites representing absolutely nothing. All they do is show you've been to college.

Anyway, this is a funny/educational video that I don’t think you have to be a writer to appreciate.

  1. funny stuff. I need to read more of his works - Slaughterhouse Five is such a great novel.

  2. We got Slaughterhouse Five on our ereaders about a month ago. Leah read it and thought it was ok (I think it might have been a bit too weird for her if I remember correctly). I'll probably get to it in the next couple of months.

    A Brave New World is what was weird, in my opinion. Slaughterhouse Five was fine. I gave it a 3-star rating.
