How often do you use exclamation points in writing? I just realized today that I almost never use them, except in dialogue, and even then... well... they hardly make an appearance.

I use exclamation points (!) with relative frequency! I used two there! Oh, look, three! (and four)


Okay so I had a little fun with the fist line but, all kidding aside I use exclamation points frequently. I typically use them to show excitement, amiability, just for fun, or at the end of idioms. But what can I say, I like my idioms and I'm excited all the time so... yeah!

I also like to use EM dashes (lots and lots of EM dashes!) in place of commas. I'm odd though!
