There are other sentences like these that I cannot locate any good, straightforward rules for. Another example: “Will you shut up?” she said looking at her hair.

Another example: They cruised around town and through the park that ran along the river looking for girls their age. (comma after “looking”?)

I keep hesitating each time I have one of these sentences with a word that ends in “ing” and don’t know if the comma would go before that word. I just feel like I have commas everywhere.

Any rules or help out there?

(I also still have a post a few down that hasn’t been answered….about punctuating a character’s thought.)
