    I climbed out of the ditch

    This sentence is from a short story I am currently writing. I am not sure about the place of "on all fours"in my sentence. Would you please correct the mistakes?

    I climbed out of the ditch on all fours onto the soft shoulder.

    Or should be instead like this:

    I climbed out of the ditch onto the soft shoulder on all fours.

    Re: I climbed out of the ditch

    Instead of the combination of "climbed" and "on all fours" you could just say "I crawled out of the ditch onto the soft shoulder".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
