This weeks episode focuses on a very serious issue, one that has to be taken very seriously. I've titled it:
"Hello, my name is Renee, and I'm a COMMAHOLIC."
It's true. I have an addiction to the comma. Now, it may look innocent, but I assure you, turn your back for one minute, and it takes hold.
Comma abuse is a problem that takes a hold of you, and you don't even realize it. Suddenly, commas just appear in place where they don't belong. You push the comma key like you push the space bar. Every time you pause in your thinking, you push the key! You can't stop! Before you know it, the commas have taken over!
So, it's back to school for me.
In fact, I am hosting an intervention for myself in the comments section. If you feel so inclined, please offer me one rule on the correct or incorrect usage of commas. Or if you'd rather, just tell me where I misused commas in this post. I'm sure there are at least a few instances.
You're vigilance and wisdom is much appreciated. And please, don't let Comma Abuse happen to you.
