Last Week #41 - Semi-Colons

Looking at a few early pages of my WIP and I wondered, what's with all the semi-colons? I took them out. Like a lot.  What was I thinking?  Seriously, like 5 on one page?  Who need 5 semi-colons on one page?  It's all much better now, of course.  In general, I don't think fiction needs a lot of semi-colons. Maybe 5 in an entire novel, not on a single page.  Maybe I hadn't learned that when I wrote that page.  I wonder what else I have to learn.
