Use semicolons because you think they look good, not because you know how they work


Then; as if by magic; the curtain fell and the entire theatre erupted into applause. I was of course delighted the reception was more than I could have hoped for I felt pride swelling; in my chest. Turning to the director; I said
’They love; me they really love; me!’
He winked; and motioned to the centre of the stage. I took my place and felt the whoosh of ;hot air; as the curtain swept up again. Clap; clap; clap; clap; clap; clap; clap; clap. Went the crowd.
