Writing advice tells us to write not just words, but music.
You might’ve seen Gary Provost’s rendition of that advice:
But while Provost makes the goal clear—to write music, not words—he leaves the implementation unclear.
Yeah, I can write short and medium sentences.
But now I want to write longer sentences, sentences to evoke awe and drama, sentences to burn with energy and build with all the impetus of a crescendo.
How do I do that?
It turns out the relevant techniques are imprisoned inside dry and dense grammar books. It also turns out the techniques aren’t mainstream.
And so I have a social mission in sharing this material with you. I want more people to write rich and sumptuous sentences for the Internet. And hopefully through this guide I can help one or two people do just that.
In this guide, you’ll learn:
- How rich writing is not subtractive but additive
- The key ingredient to elegant sentences (and tweets)
- And four ways to end a sentence with impact
The goal: X-Ray vision into what makes short and medium sentences pop and longer sentences crackle. Let’s get to it.
