Why is punctuation so important?!

Once a writer completes a manuscript and sends it out into the world, he or she loses control over how an audience will read and interpret the text. Since every reader’s mind works differently, writers must hope that the only tools they have, words and punctuation, will guide the reader’s understanding of the work.

Essentially, punctuation is a tool used to organize words to facilitate readability. Looking at a couple examples, it’s easy to see how a change in punctuation can drastically skew the meaning.
