So I was sitting around taking medication for my massive writer's block when a simple question popped in my head. What's the people's opinion of usage of emoticons as like formal types of punctuation/ usage in like stories and wherever and stuff?
Emoticons are facial expressions depicted by punctuation marks ex :) :D :( :o . I think they're epic. They're generally used on facebook posts or text messages to imply a feeling or emotion by the writer. I have this crazy idea that has the potential to change the literary world. I'm planning on starting to add emoticons to my school assignment papers and treat them as a formal part of grammar. Pretty awesome huh ;). I hope that implementation of these smiley faces may add a new, interesting twist to the infernal black and white papers I generally write. If I'm lucky, the emoticons will give the reader a better idea of what the character is feeling or what my opinion/outlook is imposing on my emotions/facial expressions.
I dont even know if this going to work at all :P... I'm going to try it anyway and stay optimistic lolz. ;D
Whats your opinion on the usage of emoticons in stories or assignments???????
Is there anything unique that you add to your compositions? Please share with me... 8)
