    "She made breakfast thinking how tasty it will be" VS "She made breakfast, thinking

    1)She made breakfast thinking how tasty it will be.2) She made breakfast, thinking how tasty it will be.Is there any difference between those sentences? I think it's the same. Am I wrong?

    Re: "She made breakfast thinking how tasty it will be" VS "She made breakfast, think

    The comma makes no difference at all. But both are wrong. It should be "thinking how tasty it would be", not "will be". Look up sequence of tenses.

    Remember to put a space after any punctuation mark that ends a sentence.

    I would use the comma.

    Please put your suggested sentences on separate lines in future posts.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
