Hey Ana, great suggestions. Thanks. I never know if you should use “ago” or “earlier” when talking about something that happened previously (Nine months ago or Nine months earlier). Sometimes ago feels right and sometimes earlier feels right.

Thanks for reading.

Hi Todd,

Haven’t read your chapter yet, but re: ago/earlier.

Try using ago when the time is definite. ex. Nine months ago. Seven weeks ago. Four hours ago.

And earlier when time is nebulous or uncertain. ex. Earlier that day.  Earlier in the week. Earlier in their relationship.
