Quote – Brooks Landon

owl_art-wallpaper-1920x1200“Cumulative sentences, those loose sentences that quickly posit a base clause and then elaborate it by adding modifying words and phrases fascinate me with their ability to add information that actually makes the sentence easier to read and more satisfying, answering questions as it provides more detail and explanation, flying in the face of the received idea that cutting words rather than adding them is the most effective way to improve writing.” – Brooks Landon
