I’m always curious to see what will be my next terrible grammar trap. Currently, I have a thing for parentheses all over the place, which started in my journal and crept into all of my other writing to the point that I had to actually add a postscript at the end of my English essay apologizing for the “frightful parenthetical.” Before this… hm. I’ve always had a run-on sentence fixation. I’ve been through several of the LJ bad habits – letting sentences fade into tiny type, writing without pronouns, spacing everything with …’s or –‘s or whatever, using “etc.” far too often, putting, commas, everywhere, putting commas nowhere, abbreviating everything (though never LOL – I can’t explain it, I have nothing against it, I just don’t use it out of habit), putting !’s between everything (exclamatory!Jenn), “”‘s on everything, overstyling, and on and on.
So what will the next thing be? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
