I CAN’T DO COMMAS.

I read it.  I insert commas when I pause.  I publish.  I read it again.  I pause at the commas.  It sounds wrong.  I move said commas.  I read it again.  I update.  I check it again.  It sounds wrong.  The commas are in the wrong place.  Again.  I can’t do commas.

Do I need to be musical?  Am I missing something upstairs?  Is it because I’m Mathsey?  Can it be learned?  Can I get better?

Do I need to just use. Really. Short. Sentences.

Is it linked to a childhood memory of being told off for not using commas? (By the same teacher who told me off when I innocently told her that I was going to write about “monkeys” instead of “swings” when I had been struggling to find “swings” in the dictionary and she wouldn’t help me spell “swings”.  Don’t worry, I’m over it.)

Thanks for listening.  And thanks for any help! ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, Especially need help with my article on learning to lose and this week’s parenting particle on sharing music with your children!
