Comma splices and run-on sentences

I stumbled across them in the prose of three different good fanfic writers this morning.

This page on comma splices and run-ons may help! It's short, quick, clear.

Yes, I make tons of grammar mistakes myself. Those are just ones I happen to notice, because I once had a teacher who dropped our grades a full letter for each comma splice.
