This board is a composition workshop, like a writers' workshop: post your work with questions about style or vocabulary, comment on other people's work, post composition challenges on some topic or form, or just dazzle us with your inventive use of galliambics.

dum invenio viam


Shouldn't it be: dum inveniam viam?

Modo verba dicam quas scio te videre

Does the relative clause suppose to relate back to "verba"?
If so, then it has to be quae(neut. acc. pl.), rather than quas, becuase verba is the neuter plural of verbum.

Yes, I have a number of errors, it seems. Although I had "quae" for that phrase originally in line 10, I must have let it slip there. It should read "quae" not quas.

Also, little known to any of you, but I had originally "illa verba videntur bona" for line 2, but changed it to its current form. I'd like to change it back to "illa verba videntur bona" which seems overall a better phrase.
