I  sometimes write long paragraphs. Editors want short. Create white space, they say. I hate to scroll and lumped together looks better to me. Change, they say. Leave it until last, I say. On my blog, I could care less. I hope nobody grades me on this stuff. I can’t create and edit at the same time. I need to go back later and edit, but the blog goes as it goes. The book matters more and I went back to editing this weekend. Readability rises with each short sentence added and the white space cleans up the look. My longer paragraphs often tell rather than show, so my rewrite shoots off more bore.
