I'm editing now: approaching storm. I now see that brewing cannot take the adjective form in meaning. It's adjective form is always nounal or verbal in meaning, as in brewing industry or a storm is brewing. Thank you. That's actually one of the issues in my notes I needed to verify. I liked brewing storm better in terms of sound and feeling . . . if it were grammatical. I don't follow you about the rest. Inspired and impassioned can take the verbal form and are routinely used just so. I'm writing in the historical past tense and not addressing any one of Paine's works in particular in this case. I'm describing his style in general. Are you suggesting I shift to present tense? That's actually another issue in my notes, namely, "shift tense.""He was at his best when he inspired or impassioned. In that wise, his style was the quite eloquence and simplicity of a brewing storm."
There are too many grammar and spelling errors in that one sentence to bother explaining. Hire a ghost writer.
What's this posing all about?
So many?! I see only one of significance in that passage. Posing? Posers don't ask for advice, Donald.
