    was getting bored while sitting on the bed

    My respected teacher,

    1: "I was getting bored while sitting on the bed." OR "I was getting bored while I was sitting on the bed." ?
    2: "Some people start writing poetry when their hearts are broken." OR "Some people start to write poetry when their heart is broken." ?
    3: ''Not to speak of writing poetry in English, I can't even write in my own language." Explain this please?
    4: "We must build vocabulary up.'' OR "We must build up vocabulary." ?

    Thanks in advance!

    3: ''Not to speak of writing poetry in English, I can't even write in my own language." Explain this please? I am not good at writing in my own language, let alone writing poetry in English.
    4: "We must build vocabulary up.'' OR "We must build up vocabulary." Either is acceptable?

    Thanks in advance!
