(Glitch #424 was too boring; it had to go away.)
Today’s second glitch:
Always use a comma or commas to separate a direct address, even when addressing someone who isn’t actually present, from the rest of the sentence. (You do know how to do that, don’t you, O Reader of my blog? 🙂 )
Do not capitalize the first word following a dialogue tag when it’s a continuation of the sentence that began before the tag.
“Okay, hot boy who sits next to me in English class,” she whispered to herself, cracking her knuckles and grabbing a pen, “get ready to be cyberstalked!”
