It’s been awhile since I’ve done a grammar article. This is a good article as it is a lesson I recently learned. This was a problem my own writing suffered and I was unaware of the mistake. Like many grammar issues, not everyone knows all the rules and often teaches give only half answers. Those who told me of this problem in the past could only tell me partial rules, so I generally ignored it.
I wanted this to be part of my comma series that I will have in the coming months, but this deals with much more than just commas and really does need to be its own article.
