Creating Sentence Variety

mining food

Imagine if you had to eat oatmeal for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. That would be pretty hard to take. Readers want variety in their sentences, too. Notice how boring sentences are when they sound the same.

I ate a hotdog for lunch. I had cheese and onions on it. I had spicy chips with it. I had a dill pickle spear. I had black olives and a celery stalk.

Different beginnings and lengths make these sentences interesting.

I ate a cheese hotdog with onions and ketchup. Spicy chips, a crunchy dill pickle spear, and a celery stalk added snap. Lunch rocked!
