    to constantly be in charge

    Hello,

    *self-made sentence*

    - Everything went bad. That was because of her desire to constantly be in charge.
    - Everything went bad. That was because of her desire to be constantly in charge.

    I cannot decide where to put "constantly" - before the verb be or after it.

    Thanks.

    Re: to constantky be in charge

    There are people who will still tell you that you should never "split an infinitive" - meaning that you should never put a word between "to" and the verb it is attached to. That "rule" is a myth. Ignore it.

    Both your examples are grammatically correct.

    Check your spelling carefully. You misspelt "everything" twice, with two different misspellings, and you misspelt "correctly" in your title.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
