Like a music, sentences need a variety of length, transitions, and word choice.
Have you ever ordered a dish in a restaurant and been not happy with its taste, even though it contained most of your favorite ingredients? Just as a meal might lack the finishing touches needed to spice it up, so too might a written paragraph or essay contain all the basic components but still lack the stylistic finesse required to engage a readers. Sometimes writers have a tendency to reuse the same sentence pattern throughout their writing. Like any repetitive task, reading text that contains too many sentences with the same length and structure can become monotonous and boring. As a result, experienced writers mix it up by using an assortment of sentence patterns, rhythms, and lengths.
In this illustrated video, you will learn how to use sentence variety to make your writing more interesting and stop boring your readers. Thus, this lesson discusses how to introduce sentence variety into writing, focusing on the two major strategies for achieving varied sentence structure in our writing. Varying sentence length between short/simple and complex/long sentence patterns, and varying sentence types are the strategies discussed in the video. You can use these techniques when revising a paper to bring life and rhythm to your work. They will also make reading your work more enjoyable.
