    changeable

    Which of the two following expressions is better, #1 or #2?

    1. But, she often makes plans with me, and then she'll suddenly change her mind. She changes like the weather.
    2. But, she often makes plans with me, and then she'll suddenly change her mind. She is changeable just like the weather.

    Re: changeable

    You need to remove the commas in both. Both "she changes" and "she is changeable" are OK. I wouldn't bother with "just" in the second. I find the one with "she changes" a little neater and more natural.

    But she often makes plans with me and then suddenly she'll change her mind. She changes like the weather.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
