    5 word Sentence

    I tried to make a sentence with these 5 words (palpitate, palatable, intrepid, matron, inception).

    Would you please let me know if the sentence is correct and if it could be written in a better way?

    I appreciate any comments even about the way I wrote my question.

    The matron was palpitating when she entered the strange restuarent, but she tried to look intrepid from inception and ordered a palatable dish.

    Hello, Moosavian.

    (1) Congratulations! You have worked very hard and written a very

    nice sentence.

    (2) I think (my opinion only) that you have used some words that

    probably should be used in other kinds of sentences.

    (3) I think that most native speakers would suggest that you use

    other words.

    (4) Maybe something like:

    Although the lady felt very fearful when she entered the strange

    restaurant, she immediately found the courage to act very

    self-confident as she sat down and ordered a delicious dish.

    (5) Be careful with the word "matron." Sometimes that means

    an older woman. If you use this word, you might hurt a woman's

    feelings.

    ***** Thank you *****

    Is this a correct place for asking this kind of question? Can I ask more question of this type here?
