Does this make sense?

I am new to spanish and trying to formulate some sentences from what little pieces I know...please excuse the sappy, dramatic nature of the following.

estoy tratando de concentrarse en las cosas mundanas pero mi mente divaga.

and later I wrote...

mi mente divagaba y todavìa està divagando porque lo qùe puedo decir en español me hace pienso en ella. ella no es mundanas.


Thanks!

Welcome to the forums!!
As you can see, you've done pretty well.
There's an 'Accents' drop-down menu above where you type that contains all the special characters you'll need to type in Spanish, including the correctly-accented vowels.

I changed 'ella', which is a pronoun referring to a feminine subject I didn't catch, to the neuter form. You'll need to tell me what you were trying to say in that last sentence.

With no reference, I give the same corrections as Rusty, with the same final question.

"mi mente divagaba y todavìa està divagando porque lo qùe puedo decir en español me hace pienso en ella. ella no es mundanas."
For what I understand, you're trying to say....
"Mi mente divagaba y todavía está divagando intentando decir en español lo que ella me hace pensar. Ella no es de este mundo......"
"Mi mente divagaba y todavía está divagando porque lo que puedo decir en español me hace pensar en ella. Ella no es de este mundo...."

Saludos
