How to Write English Sentences - Introduction

Before you write an English sentence you have to get organized.

The first stage of organization is choosing the single or complete thought that you are stating, describing, explaining or asking. The thought should include 1. a subject, and 2. an action or state of being.

Lets describe the different available subjects to be used in our example sentence.

You can use yourself as the subject of your sentence. You can use your brothers or sisters or any or all of your family members as the subject of your sentence. You can use neighbors, friends, people you know, even people you do not know as the subject of your sentence. In fact you can use anybody (living or dead) as the subject of your sentence.

Maybe you want to use your pet dog or goldfish as the subject of your sentence. You can use any (living or dead) insect, bird, mammal, reptile, fish, bacteria or any creature as the subject of your sentence.

Maybe you want to use your new toy, Sentence Master Game, computer software, hybrid car, house, office or space pen as the subject of your sentence. You can use any naturally constructed or man made items or objects as the subject of your sentence.

Maybe you want to use another person's new car, laptop computer, motorcycle or funny tie as the subject of your sentence. You can use any other person's naturally constructed or man made items or objects as the subject of your sentence.

Maybe you want to use your pet dog's possessions as the subject of your sentence. You can use any (living or dead) insect, bird, mammal, reptile, fish, bacteria or any creature's possessions or objects as the subject of your sentence.

You may want to use your actions as your subject of your sentence. You can use swimming or running as subjects for your sentence. Almost all visible actions can be sentence subjects.

You may want to use another person's actions as the subject of your sentence. You can use their swimming or running as subjects for your sentence. Almost all visible actions performed by another can be sentence subjects.

You may want to use a natural process or an animal's or machines' actions as the subject of your sentence. Almost all visible actions performed by mother nature, all creatures and machines can be used as sentence subjects.

You may want to use invisible actions as your subject of your sentence. These invisible actions are also described as intangible actions. You can use your thinking or dreaming or wondering as intangible actions as subject of your sentence.

You may want to use another person's invisible or intangible actions as the subject of your sentence. You can use another person's daydreaming or fantasizing as intangible actions as subject of your sentence.

You may use your state of being as the subject of your sentence. The state of being is also considered an intangible item. You can use your feeling happy or sad as the intangible subject of your sentence.

You may also use another person's state of being as the subject of your sentence. You can use their feeling happy or sad as the intangible subject of your sentence.

You may want to use an un-real item or action or state of being as the subject or your sentence. You can use imaginary people, animals, objects, planets, actions, thoughts, and other intangibles as the subject of your sentence. In fact you can use imaginary characteristics of your imaginary friend's pet "axelyrty" as the subject of your sentence.

You may want to use a small amount of imagination and only use imaginary thoughts or feelings or actions to a real person, animal, object or machine.

As a writer of English sentences you have an extremely wide choice of available subjects. you can use English sentences to write about anything both real and unreal.

The second stage of organization is choosing 2. an action or state of being.

Let's describe the different available actions or states of being that can be used in our sentences.

We can use visible, invisible or intangible actions in our sentence. We can use real or unreal actions in our sentence.

We can use visible, invisible or intangible states of being in our sentence. We can use real or unreal states of being in our sentence.

The very simple aspect about writing English sentences is that if you can think about "it" then "it" can probably be used as an action or state of being and even a subject in an English sentence.
