I am writing a sentence that contains a list of elements in it. Some of the elements are formed with linking verbs and some with action verbs.
Laura is a sexy lady, smells heavenly, dances salsa gracefully, and plays soccer in her free time.
To me, somehow, mixing linking verbs (is, smells) and action verbs (dances, plays) in the same sentence sounds strange. I feel that it, somehow, breaks the parallel structure of the elements of the list. However, since English is not my mother tongue, I've learned to distrust my "feelings" about how something sounds.
