The Evil Dangler

I get a lot of blank stares when I point out danglers. There are a lot of different kinds of danglers. The key thought process the writer needs to go through is, "Does the descriptive clause effectively connect to the object it is describing?" I've seen descriptive clauses describing an object in the previous paragraph. They aren't as egregious, but keep your descriptions next to their object.



Write Every Day!
