I will be recompensed.

Post by susieq » Sat Nov 12, 2016 8:26 pm

Hi everybody,

Could you please tell me if my English sentence is correct and if my punctuation (in English example) is correct? This sentence is in the introduction of a writer who is describing her purposes of writing.

My attempt: If I can achieve this with them, I will be recompensed. (but doesn't it sound better to write "then it will be worth it" or maybe "then my goal has been accomplished"?

Thank you so much.

"I will be recompensed" suggest that you will receive some money (for example).

The other options may be better. It all depends on what you really want to convey.
