             Sentence Variety


When we speak, we innately use sentence variety to create a natural rhythm in our speech.  We do this regardless of the language we speak or the level of formality we use.  Sentence variety is just important in our writing.


To create a natural rhythm in writing, writers will use a variety of sentence lengths as well as a variety of sentence types.  Sentence types include

simple sentences, compound sentences, complex sentences, and 

compound-complex sentences.  This Sentence Joining Chartwill help you create these types of sentences.
