In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “By the Dots.”

We all have strange relationships with punctuation — do you overuse exclamation marks? Do you avoid semicolons like the plague? What type of punctuation could you never live without? Tell us all about your punctuation quirks!


Comma, comma, comma, comma!

Every time I write, I sometimes become confused using comma’s properly.

However; after, consuming several online college writing courses, my anguished of using commas correctly has subsided slightly. 

Before the classes, I often said aloud “comma, comma, comma, comma,” as I began my editing and revision process

My repeated use of the word comma, reminded me of the Culture Club song Karma Chameleon.

  1. You are better than me. I use Grammarly, so I know if I missed or used to many commas. 🙂

    1. I use Grammarly also. It is the best money I spend for my blog site. Lol 🙂

      1. It sure is worth it. Saves me time and makes editing so easy.
