I am writing a story and a girl screamed at somebody and to help the people reading I want to tell them how mad she was, but I can't think of anything, the sentence is:

She was so angry she could...

I thought maybe I should try:

She was so angry she could punch a locker

since she is in a school, or

She was so angry she could not speak

but that would not make sense she screamed at someone.

    This is unclear to me, can you explain some more? Hint: proper layout helps. Your paragraph is one big sentence. – Jan Doggen Nov 30 '18 at 11:13

    In addition to the “proper layout helps” comment, so does proper English (especially here on ELL!). It’s not i can’t, i wanna, it’s I can’t, I want to. I’ve tidied up this question, but please be more careful with your next one. You can visit our Contributor’s Guide for a wealth of helpful tips. – J.R. Dec 1 '18 at 14:01

To tell the people how mad she is you could write:

She was so angry that her mind went blank.

  • I was going with a exegesis so that he could think more. – Ambashankar Sagitra Nov 30 '18 at 20:32
  • @Ambasharkar - The problem is, “She gone blank” is neither idiomatic nor grammatical. Your answer had to either be fixed or deleted. – J.R. Dec 1 '18 at 14:04
