As writers, we are advised to vary sentence length in our work or run the risk of either boring the reader to death or coming off as an amateur. Readers of creative writing are heavily influenced by the flow of the writing and can easily be turned off by work that consists of nothing but three-word sentences or page-long paragraphs of long, loopy sentences. Punctuation matters!

Here are some tips on how to recognize, correct, and even avoid fragments and run-on sentences.
