Is this a run-on sentence?
I thought about what he'd said soon I realized he was right.
No, it is not a run-on sentence, but it is reversed. It should read, As soon as I realized he was right, I thought about what he'd said.
GuruBlue is correct that it's better if you rephrase it.
As you wrote it, it's a run-on, but it isn't smoothly fixed without revision.
Are these run-on sentences also:
A. I went home and ate and ate.
B. Before lunch, I played volleyball; after lunch, I played again.
C. You and I and the whole team will go.
B And c i think
None of these are run-ons.
A = simple subject, compound verb
B = compound sentence joined with semicolon
C = compound subject, simple verb
Thanks so much for all the help!
