    Default Is this right?

    Hello dear friends.

    Can someone say in story:

    I was ready to howl at my bad luck.

    Meaning that he is very frustrated at the circumstances. Is it right?
    Thank you for your help.

    It's fine, as Gillnetter said. You could also say, "I could have howled at my bad luck".
