    Default Re: Practicing useful expression

    I'll start:
    - This story looks for the real crime committed in 1990.- This could be fine, as long as you want to say that people currently have the wrong idea about the crime committed in 1990.
    - It penetrates into my mind when I was very poor.- The tense is wrong- it should be passed and I would also change the verb- depending on exactly what you want to say, it could be something like 'It struck me when I was poor'
