What is a comma splice, and how do I identify that in my writing?

A comma splice means that you have placed a comma between two independent clauses. To find this common punctuation error, look for the subjects and verbs in the phrase before the comma and in the phrase after the comma. If you find two separate subject/verb combinations, then you know you committed a comma splice. An easy fix is to replace the comma with a period.
