Recently, I came to a conclusion about my writing. I’m ‘Comma-challenged.' I’ve forgotten all the rules I learned in school (which are now coming back to me as I see my PNR editor making the same corrections over and over again).
Fine. Not the worst thing in the world... I can start throwing those commas back into my writing (in the proper spots ideally). Not a big deal. Time to move on.
Then, today, as I'm going through round two of edits for my Sci-Fi Romance novel, The Traitor's Touch, I realized I'm more than comma-challenged, I'm 'Hyphen-Challenged'! Seriously... the majority of my edits today were my lack of or misuse of hyphens.
I guess I just don't like those little lines (commas or hyphens) in my writing.
And I'll spare you by not tell you about my ellipsis issues… for now.
