Writing Tip: Sentences Need Variety…Just Like A Good Salad

When writing, be prepared to create a variety of ways to speak on paper.  Readers tend to recognize redundancy, and the last thing a writer wants is to bore the life out of their audience by being repetitive with word usage and sentence structure.

For instance, use dependent clauses when starting starting a fresh idea in a new paragraph instead of starting every paragraph with the same exact word or structure.  It lifts the story out of blandness to boldness, and it always beats starting every single paragraph or every other paragraph with pronouns or the word THE.

No, authors don’t need to be scholars, however, they do need to know how to create a great flow of words for every reader.
