Short Sentences for Me?

As a qualification of yesterday’s post:

I am not saying that we don’t need short sentences. When the thoughts expressed, however, are better served by long sentences, avoiding them out of a desire to make things “easier to read” is no better: the apostle Paul, too, uses long sentences in the opening of Ephesians, whose audience was the young as well as the old, the uneducated as well as those highly trained in rhetoric.

But when short sentences would express ideas better than long ones, watch me closely to enforce the discipline to write those short sentences. Each sentence according to its need. Or so I shall try.
