Saluēte, amīcī ? carī!
I have a question regarding the future participle. I would like to know what the difference in connotation is between these two sentences:
Epistulam scrīptūrus sum.
My guess is that "epistulam scrīptūrus sum" has a connotation in English like "I'm going to write a letter," whereas "epistulam scrībam" would translate best as "I will write a letter."
