They say the first step in curing an addiction is admitting you have one. That being said, there's a very good chance that I am addicted to using commas in my writing. I will go on a tear in my writing during a rough draft, then I read it through and can't help but notice the flurry of commas on the page. It may be neurosis and paranoia, or it could be a full-fledged problem with the way I write. Either way, I become quite self-conscious about the amount of the little punctuation mark. Has anyone else found themselves pouring over their work and becoming a wee bit distracted by the seemingly endless sentences?
