Orig: After this story, I thought that I participate the dog show.
Correction: After reading the story, I have thought of participating in a dog show.
"After this story" should be "After reading the story" which shows the action done.
"I thought" should be "I have thought" since (Please help)
"the dog show" should be "a dog show" shows non-particularity.
* I need some help with the comments, please.
Blouen, the corrected sentence will be great if you keep with 'I thought', not 'I have thought'. The sentence is in a simple past tense, not past perfect.
