    Re: Rule..

    That's OK, as long as the previous sentence tells us about the event that 'afterwards' referes to.

    Exclamation Re: Rule..

    I think that it is not wrong what you said !But the word afterwards has a place in a sentence which cannot be changed!
    • After cannot be used alone as a linking word to join one thing that happens with another thing that happens after that. Instead, use (and) then, (and) afterwards, or (and after that:
    • EXAMPLE: We went to a party and afterwards we went to a club!
    I hope I will help u with these explanations!If you need help for sth else write back to me!
