    all was

    Are both these sentences correct:

    1-He put the plate away and from here on was all bustle and business.
    2-He put the plate away and from here on all was bustle and business.

    Re: all was

    Hello Navi

    I would be inclined to say "from then on", rather than "from here on"; but otherwise they're fine.

    In #1, "he" is whimsically described as "bustle and business" i.e. he made a lot of fuss.

    In #2, the situation involves "bustle and business" i.e. there was a lot of fuss.
