A blog focused on showcasing Indie authors and their work through articles, social networking, discussion, and sharing the indie love.
I’m always browsing articles by other writers about the craft of writing. I found this particular article very informative and useful, as it speaks to the use of specific types of sentence structure within the same ‘voice’ to keep readers engaged.
For myself, it was not only informative, but also very affirming as a writer. It helped me feel more confident in the way I tell my stories, as I do indeed tend to use all three types of sentences, and am often second guessing my own writing as a result.
It’s nice to know that my use of all three types is not some literary faux paus that I’m going to get nailed for later by some persnickety editor down the line.
I write what I want to read, and in a voice I want to read, because I follow the simple adage – if you are the writer and you’re skimming your own work because the language is too simple or too complex (pick your poison), then your readers will do the same.
Hope you enjoy this article as much as I did 🙂
