I will sit the way I want to!

Can I write by using a preposition in before the in above sentence?

I will sit in the way I want to!

Which is grammatically right?

    Not remotely an answer to your question, but in standard USAian idiom, it's: "I'll sit however I want!" (Often followed by a mild expletive.) Commented Jun 29, 2017 at 20:47
  • Both are grammatical, but the first is more idiomatic. "Correct" and "incorrect" are not useful terms in regard to your choices here. Commented Jun 29, 2017 at 22:37
  • i'd like to know the difference since I can't see how "sit in the way I want" is correct here. Commented Jun 30, 2017 at 13:10

I will sit the way I want to!
I will sit in the way I want to!

These both sound like awkward phrasings.

"I'll sit however I want!"

As the commenter above wrote, that looks correct.

Other slight variations which could be imagined, in a Dr. Suess book:

"I will sit the way I want to sit, and stand the way I want to stand, and everyone both left and right will think that it was grand."

or

"I will sit in the way that I want to sit, and write in the way that I want to write, and even if they do object I will not start a fight!"
