Homework Help: english

Posted by aran on Monday, December 19, 2011 at 6:09pm.

I having problems these sentences on sentence fragments and run-on sentences, including both fused sentences and comma splices and how to revise them and explain the choices that have been made. This is the sentence:

When I was in high school I never thought that I would ever actually need to know how to construct a sentence. I remember diagramming sentences. Over and over again. I questioned if it really mattered if I knew how to use a comma. Because I was bored. No one will really care if I canít use a semicolon, I will just pay someone to write for me. Now I know just how wrong I was I canít even get a job no one will even look at my resume they canít even understand my cover letters. So much for paying someone, to write for me. Now I am doing my best to understand how these things work but I really wish I had paid more attention the first time.
Keep in mind that there is more than one way to fix each error! 8 points total.

here is my work so far:
