Being watching TV, I fell asleep.

Do you avoid using 'Being' in the front of a sentence as a participle phrase even though it's grammatically correct?

Will you say 'While watching TV, I fell asleep?' or eles instead?

One more question.

Finished his homework, Roger started playing computer games.

Will you not say like that? and will say like 'After Roger finished his homework, he started playinig computer games?'

I had already too many questionsEmotion: zip it

I think this would be the last concerning this question.

0. After I (had) finished my breakfast, I went out for a walk.

1. Can I say: Having finished my breakfast, I went out for a walk?-- Yes
___________________________________________________________

You put brackets around 'had' in 0. I think 'Having' in 1 suggests the earlier tense than 'went' in the main cluase. Is it correct?

Then,

Q1) Can I also say 'finishing my breakfast, I went out for a walk' for the sentence 0 with 'had?' (you said the active voice is with -ing and the passive voice is with '-ed.' So, I ask this question.)

Q2) If it is right, is it also natural with the sentence without 'had?'

Thank you very much.

IS this Correct? After having eaten his breakfast, he went out.

Hello car apple,

Your sentence "After having eaten his breakfast, he went out." has the same meaning as:

After he had eaten his breakfast, he went out.

So it's okay.
