    Smile Doubt about the use of Will

    I wrote a sentence : Dialogue will fill all the blanks and gaps in the story. I wanted to express certainty when I used will in this sentence. Did I expressed right ?

    Thanks!

    Re: Doubt about the use of Will

    Hello Dinha

    Yes, that seems like a good use of "will" to me: it expresses predictive certainty.

    Curiously, though, it might be more usual here to use a passive construction, e.g.

    "The gaps in the story will be filled by dialogue."

    All the best,

    MrP
