Hi guys I'm not a very advanced writer, so apologies for lacking the specific terms to describe this. I have a feeling I overuse the word "as" in certain phrases in my writing. For example, here's the sort of sentence I use a lot: "The stranger stepped towards Nigel as he knelt with his head in his hands" Instead, would this be better, and if so, could someone explain why this is a preferred writing style? Is it a tense thing? "The stranger stepped towards Nigel, kneeling with his head in his hands" Thanks for any tips!
