    2. 好久不见-I thought you were gone and not coming back to HiNative. >< My Dad grabbed a picture of a crying baby from an old box at my grandfather’s house on April 28, 2012 in Xiangxi (city), Hunan province, telling me that he had found a baby abandoned near a small hospital in early summer of 1994 and that was me. I was so shocked to utter even a word. After being silent for like a century old long, I organized my words carefully, “Does that mean I am not your daughter?” Grammatically it is pretty good. First I will make a grammatical correction. Next the style. *My Dad grabbed a picture of a crying baby from an old box at my grandfather’s house on April 28, 2012 in Xiangxi (city), Hunan province, -grammar: My Dad grabbed a picture of a crying baby inside an old box at my grandfather’s house on April 28, 2012 in Xiangxi (city), Hunan province. 1) I think you might notice, but the sentence is so long it becomes confusing. 2) It’s better for style to make smaller sentences. 3) Also, even though usually dates and locations usually go at the end of a sentence. In storying telling or writing, when it is so long, its ok to put the date and location at the beginning. (like chinese) 4) formal names like Xiangxi City, Hunan Province should capitalize like New York City. But since it’s called Xiangxi, you can just say: Xiangxi, Hunan, a province in china Xiangxi City(if no one knows) Xiangxi, a city in the Hunan province of China. Theres so many ways to say, your answer is also good. style: On April 28, 2010 in Xiangxi, a city in the Hunan Province of China, my dad and I were at my grandfather’s house. He grabbed a picture of a baby (who was) crying inside a box, * telling me that he had found a baby abandoned near a small hospital in early summer of 1994 and that was me. (this part is perfect) (you don’t always have to put date and location at the start in story telling; just sometimes or whatever you think sounds best) other ways to say: -and told me that he had found a baby abandoned near a small hospital in the* early summer of 1994. That baby was me. I think a good rule is not more than one and, but, or or in a sentence. My brother and I love eating chocolate and Pizza and love drinking lemonade and tea. (see how many ands!) (grammatically correct though.) better: My brother and I love eating chocolate and Pizza. We also love drinking lemonade and hot tea. (remember what I said, if it’s a long sentence, then make it shorter. I’m sure its the same in Chinese or any language) * I was so shocked to utter even a word. (perfect) but a little better- -I was too shocked to utter even a single word. -I was so shocked that I couldn’t even utter a single word. *After being silent for like a century old long, I organized my words carefully, “Does that mean I am not your daughter?” grammatically: After being silent for like a century old long, I organized my words carefully, and said“Does that mean I am not your daughter?” (I think you should remove “I organized my words carefully” because it seems you are trying to say: In what order do I say my words) People don’t usually think when they are this shocked. It just seems unnatural. Maybe you could say: I finally got/gathered the courage to ask him, “xyz?” Whatever you felt. After what seemed like an eternity, I finally gathered the courage to ask him, “Does that mean I’m not your daughter?” After what seemed like an eternity, I asked him, “Does that mean I’m not your daughter?” On April 28, 2010 in Xiangxi, a city in the Hunan Province of China, my dad and I were at my grandfather’s house.
