Notes

  • In the transitive sense, continue may be followed by either the present participle or the infinitive; hence use either "to continue writing" or "to continue to write".
  • As continue conveys the sense of progression, it is pleonastic to follow it with "on" (as in "Continue on with what you were doing").
