    Sequence

    I would like to ask you a question when writing sequence. Which order is correct?

    1. First...........Then...........Next............Fin ally..............

    OR

    2. First......Next..........Then...............Finall y..............

    Is there a difference between the two? Could we use either one?

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    Re: Sequence

    First thing in the morning I got up. Then I brushed my teeth. Next, I prepared my breakfast. Finally, I left for work.

    Next - Then?
    Then - Next?

    So you mean to say that this is also correct then?

    First thing in the morning I got up. Next I brushed my teeth. Then, I prepared my breakfast. Finally, I left for work.

    Please confirm.
