Lesson 2: NO RUN-ON SENTENCES!

Lesson 2: NO RUN-ON SENTENCES!

A Lesson by Brandon Perales
"

Run-on sentences ruin the interest of a literature work.

"

I know you want to jam everything in into a sentence, but DON'T DO IT!

You don't want your reader to be out of breath and confuse them with run-on sentences.


PREVENT:

"I walked down the street and I got hit by a car, the driver drove off, so I had to walk home with a limp, and it hurt a lot when I walked."


HOW IT SHOULD BE:

"I walked down the street and got hit by a car. The driver drove off, so I had to walk home with a limp. It hurt a lot when I walked."
