need help with sentence fragments~
One time, I felt deeply understood was when my sister turned off the light for me because I fell asleep. I'm not the type of person who falls asleep easily. Sometimes, when I went to bed before my sister did, I wanted the lights to be turned off but she wouldn't. I couldn't sleep. Last night, she turned off the light for me when I went to bed. And I was appreciated.
Leave "One time, I felt deeply understood was when.." as it is,
my teacher said that this "..my sister turned off the light for me because i fell asleep." is a fragment,
but i don't know how to correct it.
there's one more sentence fragment in this writing, i believe it's "sometimes, when i went to the bed before......."
can anyone help me correct it please? and other grammar errors if possible..thanks!!
Re: need help with sentence fragments~
How are you defining 'sentence fragment'? To me, it's an utterance that isn't a complete sentence grammatically but can be understood in the context- the meaning is complete, but it doesn't add up to a sentence, so I don't really see why the my sister part is a fragment. It might sound better with the past perfect (had fallen asleep), though.
