PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Dimensions: 24"x31"
“This sentence has five words. Here are five more words. Five-word sentences are fine. But several together become monotonous. Listen to what is happening. The writing is getting boring. The sound of it drones. It’s like a stuck record. The ear demands some variety.

Now listen.
I vary the sentence length, & I create music.
Music.
The writing sings.
It has a pleasant rhythm,
a lilt, a harmony.
I use short sentences.
And I use sentences of medium length.
And sometimes, when I am certain the reader is rested, I will engage him with a sentence of considerable length,
a sentence that burns with energy & builds with all the impetus of a
crescendo,
the roll of the drums,
the crash of the cymbals–sounds that say
listen to this,
it is important.

So write with a combination of short, medium, and long sentences.
Create a sound that pleases the reader’s ear. Don’t just write words. Write music.”
