Can someone edit my paragraph? - Writeacher, Wednesday, December 5, 2007 at 9:50pm
In the second sentence, delete "for his graduation."
In the third sentence, delete the second instance of "the father" -- in fact you have the phrase "the father" repeated many times in the first few sentences. You need to vary the phrasing or combine some sentences.
Sentence combining is needed in sentences five and six, too. Unnecessary repetition is occurring.
"his entire possession" = the father had only one possession when he died? Or do you mean his entire estate? Or all his possessions?
The end of the next to last sentence should read "feels sadness and regret" or "feels sad and regretful." Choose one!
Comma is needed after "graduation" in the last sentence.
