I collect ghost signs. Not the signs themselves, but photos of them. _____ I had made the same drive countless times before, but I had never noticed the sign. (An ACT English question)
Why inserting "I started my collection one chilly October evening, driving home from school" is better than "Driving home from school one chilly October evening was the beginning of my collection"?
I can understand the former one is correct, but I still believe the latter is still perfectly fine. Could anyone explain the nuance?
