Hi guys,

Is it common usage to use the phrase "soon after" seperately without explanatory words after them?

As for your reference, there is a sentence below.

Thanks~

Soon after, they came across a little house made out of candy.

(If this is akaward, is there any substitutes for that, except "after a while"? )

Yes, it's common in casual English. But the explanatory words would need to be in some previous sentence.

Dear All,
How about this exemple:
Soon after the forum began, i was standing at the door.

Many Thanks.

That is OK, but its significance is murky.
