The past tense "hung" is for things (paintings on walls, clothing on hangers). The past tense "hanged" is used when referring to this method of killing people.

... or rearrange the sentence so that Rainsford's leaping doesn't interrupt Zaroff's presuming and returning. How can you restate that sentence so there's no interruption of thoughts.

Literature (Writeacher)
Be sure to have someone read this aloud to you. You should be able to find little things (some of which make no sense) like this: Zaroff presumes that Rainsford is dead after leaping off a cliff and returns <~~who returns? to his<~~who is "his"? Rainsford or Za...

The only other thing I can think of is to go through and identify every single pronoun in there ... and then make sure the antecedent for every single pronoun is crystal clear. For example, "it" -- make sure it's clear what "it" is.

Now you're at the point at which you need to read this aloud, preferably to someone else. Print 2 copies so that each of you has one, and then either you read to the other person or (better!) the other person reads it to you. You should find and be able to fix things like ...

You're making progress, but there are still contradictory parts in here: Even now, I want to be the greatest in all that I do ... This is another reason why I don't care greatly for competition.

In addition to parallelism issues, the subject and verb are interrupted by lots of words. That is usually a poor idea! Here's how I'd fix it: Other people believe that after a nuclear war, with resulting radiation and disease, the world wouldn’t be worth living in.

Writing (Writeacher and/or Ms. Sue)
The whole first paragraph is a contradiction! You don't like competition? But then you describe competitive attitudes and actions in yourself? I don't know quite what to make of this. Once you solve this problem, then I'll be able to get past it and read the rest.

Writing (Writeacher and/or Ms. Sue)
"I, personally" = redundant. Does "I" refer to anyone except you??? Go through the rest of what you've written, get rid of any repetition (redundancy) and wordiness, and make sure there are no more contradictions. http://grammar.ccc.commnet.edu/grammar/...

Writing (Writeacher and/or Ms. Sue)
Start with the first two sentences: I, personally, don't like competition. However, this is mainly because I am very competitive. How can you revise all this so there's no repetition and no contradiction?
