I'm sure when I get into the editing phase, I'll have lots of fun stuff to post about editing because I usually pull those posts from my own, horrible mistakes. But just going through a few pages I noticed one blatant error that keeps coming up.
It's everywhere. In places where a comma should never be. Where there shouldn't even be a pause. My little ring finger just keeps tap-tap-tapping away at it so my manuscript looks like it has a million little tails. And I can't seem to make myself stop. In my editing phase, I'll go through and delete a hundred of them, and in the second pass, a hundred more. I know when and where commas should be, but when I'm pumping out words, I seem to forget.
That's my worst habit, and I don't see stopping any time soon.
But what's yours? Are you a comma-fiend like me or do you have some other twisted addiction?
