More Writing Tips (Part 4 of 5)

Use chronological order. You need to arrange a series of events according to the time they occurred, beginning with the earliest events. Bette Davis won the Oscar in 1938 for her role in Jezebel and in 1935 for her performance in Dangerous. Common sense says to start with 1935.

* He snacked at 3:00 in the afternoon, 9:00 in the morning, midnight, and at odd hours before dawn. Start with 9:00, which is the earliest.

* He stared at his childhood pictures, showing him when he was a year old, nine months old, sixteen, and seven. The way to correct this one is probably obvious.

When I list time events, 
I put them in chronological order, 
beginning with the earliest date.
