I'm trying to add to my repertoire of phrases/types of sentences that replace "I did ..." and "Doing that ...". You can only use 'I' and 'ing' so much. Take the simple scene, I went back in the kitchen, put the plug in the drain and filled the sink. Entering the kitchen Plugging the drain Filling the basin No matter how I write it, the 'Is' or the 'ings' sound repetitive in the larger scene. So I'm not looking for help with this particular scene, rather, I was looking to create a thread with dozens of examples (hopefully) of ways people say "I did X" in a narrative but without using 'I' or 'ing'. I'm hoping that I can use different examples to generate ideas that work in my narrative. Thanks for sharing.
