My relationship with commas is kind of like my relationship with makeup. I love them so much I end up slapping them in places they don’t belong. It makes no sense and looks terrible but I feel like I’ve accomplished something when I’m done.
OMG YES. Back when I still used to write fic, I had a friend beta for me. She actually called me a comma whore. XD
I don’t know what’s wrong with me! I think I have a problem. Is there some sort of comma-addicts support group out there somewhere?
To be honest, my whole relationship with grammar is tenuous at best. It pretty much boils down to, “well, it LOOKS right. I don’t know if it is and I don’t know why but it LOOKS like it’s probably right.”
If there isn’t, we need to start one.
Fun Fact: I dropped out of high school during my junior year. I think. That whole point of my life is a little hazy to be honest. But even when I was still in school, I mostly taught myself everything I know. So needless to say, sometimes grammar and I throw down. And sometimes I lose horribly.
Wow. I dropped out during junior year too. Went on to get my GED and am also mostly self-taught. My high-school years were…not good.
Still haven’t gotten my GED. I probably will eventually. My high school years weren’t all that bad up until that point. Life kinda blindsided my ass. As it is want to do at times.
