Comma Drama

Accomplished Today (So far): One 650 word anime review article for publication in Otaku USA magazine, submitted prior to deadline. I prefer to get my work turned in early, when I can. I also spent a good chunk of time editing podcasts.

Writing Relevant Article: The Best Shots Fired in the Oxford Comma Wars, by Arika Okrent. Even though I studied linguistics in the course of pursuing my English undergraduate degree, my understanding of the anatomy of the English language is still largely subconscious and intuitive. I make grammar and syntax choices because they “feel correct” or because they have a pleasing visual quality. I suspect this makes me a butcher of the English language.
