Sorry, I have to leave. Thank you so much. This is just about good writing. I should always avoid run-on sentences, misplaced adjectives, and incorrect pronouns. Anything that needs to be said can be said clearly and simply. To check my work, I read it aloud. How does it sound? Communication is the goal. The exception to that is technical work or literary license, but that's another matter. Again thank you.
