"Can you tell me what steps you went through when putting together those sentences in your post? Just because you don't notice them doesn't mean they aren't there."

Actually, if you read the post, I expained the steps already.

The first step is to decide what I want to say.

Now, as a native English speaker, I know the vocabulary, so I chose the words that express my idea best.

English has a SVO word order, so I arrange the words in that order.

After that, I need to make sure that everything is in the right tense. In English (fortunately) I only need to worry about verbs. So I fix the tenses.

Then you put the sentence on paper or on the internet.
