By Joyce Glass | Grammar

Writers use words to evoke feelings, create vivid images, give hope and take people on a journey with them. The way you construct a sentence determines how your readers will respond. 

After you write your ideas out, then go back to see how you can reconstruct them in a way to bring more clarity to your work. Speed the pace up or slow it down. Think of your writing as creating a masterwork of art.

Four Basic Sentence Structures: 

Simple Sentence - One main clause

Ex. Charlie closed the door.

Compound Sentence - two or more
main clauses joined together

Ex. Charlie closed the door, and we were safe from the storm.

Complex Sentences - One main clause
and one or more subordinate clauses. 

Ex. Although the storm was raging outside,
we made it safely to the storm cellar.

Compound ~Complex Sentences
A combination of two or more main clauses
and one or more subordinate clauses. 

Ex. Although the storm was raging outside,
we made it safely to the storm cellar,
but no one remembered to bring a flashlight or blanket. 

Most compound sentences contain
only two main clauses, but three or more
are correctly joined together too.

Ex. We had back luck last week.
Our cable went out, the dog was hit by a car,
someone stole my laptop, and we forgot my mom’s birthday. 

As you edit your work, see how you can create stronger and more productive sentences in your writing.
