Which sentence contains a dangling modifier? Jerome had a box full of stories that he wrote on his computer under his bed. He never left home without a small notebook in which he wrote down ideas. When he read his stories out loud, he always captivated his friends and family. Writing a new story every day, a successful career as an author seemed certain. I have no idea which one it would be. If you understand it could you please explain it to me?

I think the first sentence has a dangling modifier. Dangling modifiers are basically descriptions that are uneccesary or out of place. So in the first sentence under his bed is out of place. Does this help?
