I am sitting here reading some old posts and realized I have serious issues with commas. They are smattered willy-nilly all over pages, stuck in between adjectives, bravely trying to manage run on sentences. I am an English teachers nightmare! Why do you torture your self with grammar mutilation when you stop for a daily dose of Waynes3girls ?
I think the problem is, I write like I speak. Long run-on sentences. I suppose I interject commas as I would a breath. And just like I begin sentences with conjunctions like “And” or “But”, I find these inappropriately introducing sentences everywhere. Fragments and endless sentences make my writing seem like a conversation with a friend, over coffee. I’ d much rather do that then speak in a rigid perfect way
Because who really speaks in correct English? How boring we would be! Forgive us Mrs. Waugh ( Wayne’s beloved English teacher from last year) for we have sinned much and committed many grammatical errors in the name of blog posting.
