Interested in Language
I learned in these forums that it's better to put the adverb before the verb.
(Maybe not always, but in most cases.)
Tom carelessly drives.
After quickly reloading my weapon I ran around the corner.
However, what if I use the "to" in the sentences?
Tom likes to carelessly drive.
I tried to quickly reload my weapon before I ran around the corner.
It seems a bit odd to me (especially the first of them.)
Fixed my post.
Instead of "adjective" I use "verb" now.
(Was a mistake.)

Sorry, I meant adverb+verb
"Tom likes to drive carelessly" sounds even better to me, yes, and I would like to know if it's more common than the version I wrote.
I have edited my first post to remove the humiliation.

Some seconds ago I wanted to write this sentence:
Okay, I will try to kindly check your sentences.
Can you please give me some advice about a good position of the kindly?
Okay, I will kindly try to check your sentences.
could be good, too.
Okay, I will try to check your sentences kindly.
However, the kindly belongs to the check because the question was:
"Could you kindly check my sentences?"
(At least analogous...)
