When I consider my skills, creativity has it all over grammar. I have a decent grasp of grammar thanks to a series of very talented grade school teachers, but the smallest things trip me up sometimes. Commas are my own particular brand of white whale, a combination of enjoying the way they look and a background in choir singing hammering into my head that “a comma on the page means a breath in the lungs.” I tend to be a visual learner, so when I reach out for guidance, cartoons are a huge help!
For today’s blog post, I thought I’d share a few that have been instrumental in getting my writing in shape. Please note that these use a bit of adult humor, so they aren’t for the sensitive!
