Welcome to Apoplectic Apostrophes! My name is Suzanne Purkis and I’m a writer, editor, mother, step-mother, dog wrangler, and sleep-deprived, tea-drinking chaos-magnet. Here you will find a strange mixture of Fiction and Non-fiction. My fiction writing comprises mostly short (flash fiction) stories, with a bit of micro fiction and poetry thrown in. My non-fiction writing stems from my passion for the English language and deals with topics like grammar, etymology, and vocabulary.
So if you have a question about sentence structure, punctuation, parts of speech, etymology—or anything else to do with the English language that you’ve always wondered about—please post it here. I’m always eager to answer your questions and share my nerdy passion with the rest of the world. Honestly. Read my manifesto if you don’t believe me.
