run on sentences
Run –On Sentences-
  • A run on sentence is a sentence with two or more main clauses that are not joined by a conjunction or separated by punctuation.
  • You can avoid these by adding a semicolon

Run Ons
  • You can also use subordination

Because I work all day at a desk, I enjoy exercising in the evenings with my friends at the YMCA.

  • Also just end the first sentence with a period and make the remaining part independent.

I go immediately home from work. After that I go straight to the gym.

Example : I work all day in the office, I exercise in the evening.
