Below you will find a series of blog posts inspired by June Casagrande’s It was the Best of Sentences, It was the Worst of Sentences. This is a perfect tool for reference, chock-full of actionable advice and morsels of information both useful and amusing. You should get your hands on what I consider an invaluable resource.
Now, onto the posts. Each of them deals with a different issue, and each issue is my own take on the issues Casagrande discusses in her chapters — I follow her structure and cite her often. The examples I make use of are my own, and I attempt my own spin on explaining concepts and strategies both. My reason for doing so is two-fold: Firstly, I’m cementing my own knowledge (if you want to learn something well, try and teach it!); Secondly, I hope to entertain you, Reader, as well as help you solve certain problems your own writing might be suffering from. The advice you will find in these articles does not pertain only to fiction–it has a bearing to every type of writing, from business to article to creative non-fiction and academic writing.
Without further ado, Reader, here are the posts available thus far:
Sentence Structure #01: Conjunctions and Subordination;
Sentence Structure #02: Clauses and Prepositions;
Sentence Structure #03: Long and Short Sentences;
That’s all for now, come back later!
