Hello.

Are the following sentences grammatically correct?


-We need to think in a new place, out of town, an abandoned place… We can't continue working like this.

-Do you think police will arrest us next time?

-Noooo, nothing about that. I don't want some idiot with his cellphone steal my perfect shot.

-Good point.

-Susan I believe you will perform an excellent "ghost" to keep Kevin scaring and making spectacles

-I really appreciate your offer, but I prefer to continue contributing to this project with the makeup and special effects.

-I understand. Let's have “the spirits” visit Mike at my place!


Thanks.

Dear teechar: Once again, thanks for your help.

No, nothing about that. I don't want some idiot with his cellphone stealing my perfect shot.

I wanted to write that it was not related to the police. Maybe It can be write like this:

No, not at all. I don't want some idiot with his cellphone stealing my perfect shot.

-Susan, I believe you will perform make an excellent "ghost" to keep Kevin scaring and making spectacles

I wanted to write that Kevin, under the influence of the "ghost" he would be scared and he would do anything the ghost told to him, even shameful acts.

Maybe it can be rewrited like this:

-Susan, I believe you will make an excellent "ghost" to keep Kevin
Tdoing what we tell him to do.


Thanks.
