Only 16 words?!

| | Comments (2)
"...aim for an average sentence length of 16 to 17 words" (Cappon 37).


While 16 words seems like a lot of room to work with, it runs out fast.  That past sentence was 16 words (counting the number 16 as a word).  It is even more difficult to write a short sentence that is still packed with information.  Considering it is on average, that does leave space to use more words in some sentences. 

I am attempting to write less than 16 worded sentences in this blog entry.  I am finding difficulty describing my ideas fully.  I have to give credit to those journalists who write such short sentences while including important details.  Especially if they do so in such a short amount of time.

I absolutely loved your blog! That was so creative of you. Instead of trying to analyze and discuss what we just read, you applied it instead and through your sentences wrote what you were experiencing. Great job!
