An Ode to the Comma

Replacements1

Dear Comma,

See, see what I did there?

I realize how necessary you are to making sense of the lengthy sentences and paragraphs we authors are prone to using.  I understand the impact you can make on a simple statement, shifting the meaning from one thing to another.

I acknowledge the necessity of your existence.

But could you, for the love of all things holy, stop being such a bloody bastard while I’m editing?

Have mercy on me and my obvious lack of ability to use you correctly.

Love,

An author clearly driven to utter distraction.

    I have the same problem, Dahlia. Exactly the same.
