Commaholic

Cool! I coined another word: Commaholic. I owe an apology to every English grammar teacher I've ever had. It's not that they were bad teachers or even that I was a bad student, it's just that somehow I've lost control of my use of commas. Any time that I have a pause in my thoughts, I tend to insert a comma. The good news, of course, is that when the Great Comma Famine comes, I'll have many extra commas squirreled away in my writings to see me through. I should be able to write for years to come just by using the excess commas that already exist in my writing.

Does anyone want to suggest a good reference for me to use to brush-up on the proper use of commas?
