To me the greatest pleasure of writing is not what it’s about, but the music the words make. ~ Truman Capote
At times when we write, it’s important to keep the composition simple and clean. Especially for communication purposes, simple is best. A to-do list, for example, or instructions on how to put something together work best in a simple format.
When writing fiction for others to read for entertainment and enjoyment, easy and short aren’t always the most important qualities of your writing. I was reading a blog the other night and all the sentences were short with subject, verb and object strung together and it was boring, dry and I moved on to anther blog without finishing .
Instill your writing with a variety of sentences types, with strong emotion-evoking verbs, with crisp description and you’ll have a better chance of making music with your words. Use all your senses when writing and let your readers know what you and your characters are experiencing… Make music.
