Another Quotation which Might (or Might Not) inspire you to write:
"Cut out all those exclamation marks. An exclamation mark is like laughing at your own joke." - F. Scott Fitzgerald
In my local critique group, the Grammar Nazis (myself included) will ROUGH YOU UP if you put more than a couple exclamation marks in each chapter. If you are using powerful words and creating dramatic scenes, those marks are unnecessary!!!
(Along with all caps and boldface. We'll let you use italics to emphasize a word or phrase, as long as it's not overused.)
