    Arrow Braking down a sentence.

    For some reason I am starting to break sentences down into two parts, to explain why I wrote it and explain the parts to it. To me the subject of the piece is everything about the piece. I never try to introduce another piece which does not reflect the subject. I just wrote a story about two people I knew who became friends. One was Mr Positive and the other Mr Negative. I try to keep it short and simple. Sometimes it's four to five paragraphs sometime six. Is there a maximum number of paragraphs that the reader might get bored with?

    Re: Braking down a sentence.

    It depends on the reader. I regularly read novels that have over 500 pages. That's a lot of paragraphs.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Braking down a sentence.

    The title should be "breaking down a sentence".
