Yeah, learning to write never ends.
The thought of a 16 year old would-be Faulkner is pretty scary.
About semi-colons: lately I've been trying to axe them from my writing altogether. I think they're increasingly regarded as a bit prissy. But academic writing is pretty conservative. And on a paper I wrote recently my older co-author went through it and inserted semi-colons in places where I'd deliberately flouted prescriptive rules and put commas instead. He was only meant to be checking the statistics.
