This is a cite from Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby : are you telling me is incorrect?
the word certain should be there or not
His life had been confused and disordered since then, but if he could once return to a certain starting place and go over it all slowly, he could find out what that thing was . .
Actually, that is not an error. "Starting" is used as an adjective here, not a verb, since it modifies place. Sometimes you would use a hyphen when using a verb form as a noun. However, if this is a direct quote from the book, and copied faithfully, you would leave it as it is.
Grammarly is made for the main body of text. I would not used it on direct quotes, formatting characters, HTML code, programming languages, or bibliographies, since it was not made for scanning those.
