, and

The post title is a little odd, I grant you, but what else do you do when faced with 200,000 words of writing where you need to insert a comma?

I opened up Scrivener and used the Find & Replace dialog box to go through every instance of ‘ and ‘ in the book. Where this was a co-ordinating conjunction, I replaced it with ‘, and ‘.

There are a lot of ‘and’s in my books.

Then I had to the whole thing again with ‘ but ‘ and ‘ so ‘.

I am in danger of getting RSI now…
