I’ve been reading this book about finding your voice and while I haven’t found it super helpful, I have discovered a few golden nuggets.
One of them is the rhythm of your sentences. The way we write. Long sentence-short sentence-short sentence. Long-long-long-short. Short-long-short-long. The author compared it to a dance. Some songs make us want to jump up and dance, others, sit down and cry. As writers we can sped up or slow down the story with our sentence structure.
