Turn "in to" or "into" a lonely lane?
I have a sentence I'm writing where I describe making a turn, as I run, into an empty alleyway. Here is how I would like to say it: > I turn *into* a lonely lane... The problem I find is that it may mean that I am changing my direction to run into a lane, or it may suggest that I am becoming a lane -- however unlikely that may be, realistically. Is there a better way to write the sentence without disrupting the flow of my writing? (I understand that I can say, "I *make a turn into* a lonely lane..." but am afraid that that might cause some incontinuity.) For example, could I say this? > I turn *in to* a lonely lane...
