comment Can I use 'drenching' to mean 'being drenched'?
My confusion is the fact that you can say 'I'm totally drenched in the rain' (I guess), but not 'I'm drenching in the rain'. I think an answer to whether 'drench' means 'to get wet' or 'to make something wet' would answer this :)

comment The correct usage of 'Not only' in the beginning of a negative sentence
@A.Gh, This is probably one situation where 'correctness' is pretty much subjective and depends on what feels right. Though there's nothing wrong per se with the position of 'not' in the other two options, the third option simply follows the convention and puts the 'not' in a position that causes no confusion. It also seems to give a flow to the sentence because it is immediately followed by the verb form 'been prepared' :) Playing around with sentence structure is widely used in literature, though.
