Eri, did you feel the earthquake that night?
Are you sure your apartment's alright?
In which planet where you when it came?
Is reality and the world you know still the same?*
Satisfied, Erin dropped her pen. Not bad. At least something good had come from the earthquake. Unfortunately, the poem wasn’t helping her to understand the mystery. On the contrary, it did nothing but raise more questions. This had never happened before. She felt as though she was fighting with a mutant vine; the more she cut the more it sprang up again.
Erin continued eating her breakfast...
I put that satisfied there to avoid having two consecutive paragraphs starting with Erin, and the this had never happened... so that the paragraph flows better (a short sentence among many long ones), same with the not bad.
I do this kind of stuff a lot. Is it a bad writing practice?
