Hello all, hope you're managing to avoid the hail (in May... what the...)
I've got a couple of sentences today. These might be stylistic decisions, but if there's a grammar rule, please let me know.
A) His heart pounding with adrenaline, he picked up...
B) Heart pounding with adrenaline, he picked up...
C) With his heart pounding with adrenaline, he picked up...
(I appreciate that there are numerous variations, such as 'His heart hammered as he picked up...', but I'm more interested in any general rule with this type of sentence opener than the actual sentence itself, so that I can apply it globally)
D) ...and landed in the water between two rocks.
E) ...and landed between two rocks in the water.
- I'm sure there's a rule here! It may well be time to dust off those grammar books.
Many thanks in advance!
