Topic: Hyphen, En dash, and Em dash
One small error or misuse of punctuation can change everything.
While I've always understood the use of the hyphen for combining words, I've never really had the pleasure of knowing how and when to use an en dash and an em dash. Those little buggers have been included in works I've read but I never thought to look up their actual uses or necessity of them in writing until now. And the reason for it all is because I used them for a few spots in my novel and it was pointed out as a misuse, I believe. Either that or the fact that the dashes didn't translate over too well when I posted the work they were used in.
Anyway, here's a little info on these marks for anyone who needs to understand them better as I did.
