I Love A First Draft

Just finished up about an hour of good, solid writing.  Looking to keep going.  But laughing because I just wrote a sentence with eight commas in it.

8 commas may be some kind of record :) Sounds like you're having a blast - keep it up!

Yay for the start! I plan on writing since I have the whole day off today!!!

8 commas, sounds like my kind of writing!!

Nisa said...

Eight? Sheesh! That's a lot of breaths. *grin* Glad you're enjoying it!

Tara said...

Love commas, just love them. Perhaps a just a tad too much. But, I can say with certainty, I've never managed 8 in one sentence. Hehe.

Woohoo for the writing!

That's hilarious about the 8 commas. I'm definitely a comma addict, but I'm trying to tone it down. First step is admitting the problem, I guess. :)

I'm still giggling. :) I cut the eight commas down to five and left it. That will definitely be a revision red flag, lol.

It's been a day - my stinker Curly Jones decided today would be the day to think it was hilarious to pee through every pair of underwear she owns, as many pairs of pants, and many times decorate the carpet as well. UGH. Thank God for the Bissel Spot Bot. I highly recommend it, LOL! Ohhhh potty training, BOOO. (And she has been accident-free so many days. Ahh, well.) Tootsie Roll did not help by getting into plenty of trouble herself today. We've had way too many snow days/holiday days off. TIME FOR ALL OF US TO GO BACK TO SCHOOL!

Ha! And here I thought we were the reigning queens of the overly long sentence.

Happy first drafting!!!

Commas are my arch nemesis.

Keep on writin'!
