I really like to speak using my own voice. It doesn't sound natural to write in a way that doesn't use my own voice, so I need to clarify a few things when it comes to connecting clauses.
Say I have a sentence: "This is comparative to someone who is rich, and in the top 1%."
How can I change that sentence so it sounds more like my own voice? I want something like:
"This is comparative to someone who is rich--in the top 1%"
Is that the correct way of doing so, or should I use a colon or semicolon? Generally speaking, I try to avoid colons in all cases except a list.
