She wrote mostly in cafes and while her daughter was asleep.
Why are there two conjunctions in a row--and while? Should I delete "and?" Thanks.
Repeating Engee30's post, if you delete and, you'll change the meaning of the sentence. A conjunction joins two like structures:She wrote mostly in cafes and [she also wrote] while her daughter was asleep.Meaning, she wrote on two occasions: 1) in cafes and 2) at home [while her daughter was asleep].
Thanks, Soup, for the sharp viewpoint.
