Question about structure?

Some grammar rules (and embarrassing mistakes!) transcend the uniqueness of different regions and style guides. This new International Grammar section by OnlineBookClub.org ultimately identifies those rules thus providing a simple, flexible rule-set, respecting the differences between regions and style guides. You can feel free to ask general questions about spelling and grammar. You can also provide example sentences for other members to proofread and inform you of any grammar mistakes.

Question about structure?

Post by Insightsintobooks729 » 15 Dec 2017, 11:46

I'm writing a review and I'm not sure if I'm writing it correctly. Here is the part I'm stuck with:

Each chapter begins with a "myth" such as, "Magic happens randomly to me". It then goes on to tell a story from the author's life that dispels that myth and reveals the truth.

Is it okay to start a new sentance after "to me" as I did or should I should I say "to me", it then goes....."?? Any help is appreciated, thank you.

I would start a new sentence if I were you. (That is if I'm understanding you correctly.)

Thank you very much. That's what I thought as well, but wasn't sure.

I hope I got you right. You should start a new sentence after the "........ to me."
