I think the length of a sentence doesn't really matter. Nothing becomes less boring simply because it's written in shorter sentences.

Yes! And that is always a big part of the debate --- how do you keep people's attention? While it's important to make things completely understandable, where is the point where the writing/writer loses the audience?

Depends on who the audience is, subject matter, a ton of other factors...

Hello and welcome!

  • My name is Kristin Gorski. I recently earned my doctorate (EdD) in instructional technology and media. My research focuses on technology and literacies, writing in digital spaces, and how media literacy may support academic literacy (among other incredibly interesting topics). On occasion, I’m also a freelance writer and editor. “Write now is good.” is my personal blog about writing, creativity and inspiration (with healthy doses of technology in relevant places). I started it in blogging's heyday (2006) and still post to it, time permitting. If you'd like to collaborate on a project, have writing/technology/creativity info to share, or want to say, "Hi," contact me at kgwritenow (at) yahoo dot com.
