Alright, I've written something and I like the way that it flows, but the rules of dangling modifiers says I should revise. This is from a conversation between a male and a female. Here's the version I like, which takes place after the male answers her question: Satisfied, she returned to her silent trek. or I like, Satisfied with his answer, she returned to her silent trek. Yet dangling modifier says it should look like this? She was satisfied with his answer, so she returned to her silent trek. Everything I do to fix the dangling modifier just makes it sound wrong or feel unnatural to me. I think it should be clear who's satisfied with his answer, so must I always put the doer with the action when it's already clear from what's been happening? I would really like it if someone could help me with this. Thanks. EDIT: After reading some, it looks as though this might work: Satisfied with his answer she returned to her silent trek. By getting rid of the comma the doer is closer to the action?
