And now for a masterclass continuation, maybe could write an article about indefinite construction.

As an editor, it’s one of the first things I look for to strengthen a writer’s piece.

I like to say, if you find yourself opening a sentence with “There are,” “It is,” or the like, you should ask yourself how you could have written that sentence directly, with a grammatical subject that means something concrete.
