    I was walking through the woods

    Would you please correct the mistakes in my sentences? I feel that something is wrong with my sentences, but I am unable to point out the mistakes.

    I was walking through the woods in the night, with the patches of mist swirling around me like ghosts. I thought that if someone were to come in my way, I would have died of fear.

    Re: I was walking through the woods

    teechar,
    Excuse me for asking again.
    I am wondering if I could in my second sentence instead of "were to come " use "came" and write like this:

    I thought that if someone came my way, I would die of fright.

    I have to admit that I am not sure if this second sentence with "came" would be correct with the past continues in the first sentence.

    Re: I was walking through the woods

    I'd remove "the" before "patches of mist".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
