Hello, Christian writer friends. I hope you are well and enjoying the spring weather (or whatever it is with you if you’re not in the UK – do you say “autumn” or “fall” in South Africa/Australia?:-)).
Quick tip this week on varying sentence lengths. You may not have thought about it, but varying the length of your sentences (and paragraphs, incidentally) will give a lovely flow to your work.
If all your sentences are long, or all your sentences are short, you just won’t get that rhythm. And I am talking about stories, not poetry!
It’s amazing what a difference it makes. Why don’t you have a look at your work in progress and see if you have a group of sentences/paragraphs all the same length. What if you made some shorter, some longer? Does it flow better? Try it and see!
Trust that helps you with your current work in progress, or give you an idea for your next story. 🙂
Love to you all,
P.S. Come over to our facebook page and send us your “befores” and “afters”. Love to see what a difference you have made!
