I'm writing a paper about life as a sophomore in 2012 in the style of Charles Dickens ("It was the best of times, it was the worst of times") and I'm not sure if this sentence makes sense or is grammatically correct. Please help!

It is a year of waiting; that of eager anticipation, and that of dread.

  • English -

    That's o.k. Are you sure, though, that you want to make it present tense, rather than past tense?

  • English -

    You also need a colon, not a semicolon after "waiting."
