Would it be acceptable to write the following using the hyphens below:
I am trying to get back to my pre-secret-mistress bliss.
Or should it be:
I am trying to get back to my pre-secret mistress bliss.
Is it ok to write:
It's taunting me like some just-out-of-reach nirvana.
Any advice would be appreciated. I have read a style guide on the subject and am now second-guessing myself. Thank you!
