"This sentence has five words. Here are five more words. Five-word sentences are fine. But several together become monotonous. Listen to what is happening. The writing is getting boring. The sound of it drones. It’s like a stuck record. The ear demands some variety. Now listen. I vary the sentence length, and I create music. Music. The writing sings. It has a pleasant rhythm, a lilt, a harmony. I use short sentences. And I use sentences of medium length. And sometimes, when I am certain the reader is rested, I will engage him with a sentence of considerable length, a sentence that burns with energy and builds with all the impetus of a crescendo, the roll of the drums, the crash of the cymbals—sounds that say listen to this, it is important.” - Gary Provost

Reading this was so satisfying woah

Take note, writers!

But somewhere in that list is also “obsess over Regina,” as Regina’s off-hand comment that Emma should take back-up causes Emma to a) take Charming as back-up, and b) re-evaluate her use of magic. I find it interesting that Regina and Emma really listen to each other in a way they don’t with anyone else. At the rate this season is going, Hook should try buttering up REGINA because Emma will ask Regina’s permission to get past first base with Hook or something.
