Comma Problems

I have recently discovered something about myself. I am a comma-ophile. Yes, I did just make that word up but you get the gist. I am someone who loves commas. Judging by the work I’m editing now, I have never found a sentence that wouldn’t benefit from a comma…or two.

I’m going to talk about grammar and punctuation more on Wednesday but suffice to say that even though I (apparently) can’t get enough of the humble comma, Word and the general rules of the English language aren’t with me on this which means I’m spending a lot of time deleting my little friends.

Who knew that a tiny flick on the page could cause so much trouble?
