Second Blog Assignment: Part 2

I thought that the example sentences that King picked to demonstrate proper uses of grammar were very amusing. In many cases, the sentence was very out of place in the writing and took you off guard. This added a little bit of comedy to a section that would have been very dry otherwise. Sentences like “Freddy and Myra carried the body out of the kitchen and laid it on the parlor sofa” (page 123) in the middle of a paragraph definitely add some comedy to a long paragraph about the passive voice and how to write your sentences in a way that sounds more fluid.
