Short sentences

After finishing ‘several short sentences about writing’ , as I mentioned earlier. I’m still thinking about it, and considering reading it again already. I have a lot to learn about writing.

For one, my sentences tend to be too long and meandering. I need to do away with ‘with’ and ‘as’ where I can.

Be clear! Say what you mean! Clarity should be the most important, in any sentence. It is sometimes hard to keep this in mind.

“There are innumerable ways to write badly. The usual way is making sentences that don’t say what you think they do.” – Verlyn Klinkenborg

Something to remember…
