Nuts and Bolts: Breaking the Rules, Punctuation

May 30, 2017

Nuts & Bolts – Breaking the Rules, Punctuation


“Learn the rules like a pro, so you can break them like an artist.” – Pablo Picasso
Our card reviewers may seem like real sticklers for the rules, especially punctuation. Why? Nothing screams “unprofessional” louder than grammatical, spelling, and punctuation errors. However, sometimes in the spirit of artistic license and expression, the rules need to be flexible. GCU has established some exceptions to hard and fast rules to allow for creative composition.


Here is one example:

On the Inside Verse, the standard punctuation rules apply;
A comma is needed if all on one line: Happy Birthday, Grandma
A comma IS needed if on two or multiple lines:
Happy Birthday,
A comma would not be needed in this case: Happy Birthday to my Grandma. 


The difference is made in the details!
