The first step in the process is searching for ideas to write about.

All you can do is stare at a blank sheet of paper.

這兩個句子中 searching 和 stare 為何一個加ing, 一個沒有

    Be動詞後面加的動詞不能用原型動詞

    一定是 be+Ving

    be+Ved

    be+to V

    The first step in the process is searching for ideas to write about.

    其實

    The first step in the process is to search for ideas to write about

    也可以,只是有二個to不好看,所以上一句比較美觀

    第二句

    All you can do is stare at a blank sheet of paper

    是錯的

    正確是

    All you can do is to stare at a blank sheet of paper

    All you can do is staring at a blank sheet of paper

    都可
