two independent clauses are connected with only a comma. COMMA SPLICE EXAMPLES Comma Splice: My family bakes together nearly every night, we then get to enjoy everything we make together. Correction 1: My family bakes together nearly every night. We then get to enjoy everything we make together. Correction 2: My family bakes together nearly every night, and we then get to enjoy everything we make together.

Correction 3: After my family bakes together nearly every night, we get to enjoy everything we make together. SUGGEST A REVISION FOR THE COMMA SPLICE I didnt like the movie, it was way too long.
