Question:

How do you start when you sit down to write your college application essay?

Answer:

Start by brainstorming some details about yourself that you feel make you special. Don't worry about how it looks, and don't hold back--this is just for you. Make a list of your hobbies--what interests you? Make a list of some experiences you've had that you feel are special and important--what experiences do you think have shaped you into who you are today? Make a list of people who have been special and influential in your life--how have they impacted you?

Question:

How do you correctly use a semi-colon in a sentence?

Answer:

Semi-colons can be used in two ways--they are a great choice for connecting two independent clauses that are closely related in content. For example: Sasha brought a loaf of bread; Sam brought a jar of jam. Semi-colons can also be used to separate groups of items in a list. For example: The students brought a box of sandwiches, including ham and cheese on rye; peanut butter and jelly on sourdough; turkey and avocado on whole wheat.

Answer:

The answer is: all three answers are correct! A comma splice is a kind of run-on sentence that presents two independent clauses (think complete sentences) connected with a comma. Comma splices can be punctuated correctly by replacing the comma with a semi-colon, a period, or a comma with a coordinating conjunction, such as "and."
