About ‘the sentence’
👋 Hi, I’m reading “Several short sentences about writing”. The following is a note about what I remember so far from about an hour of reading. I’ve not thought much about sentences since primary school. I did not think a lot about them then. I feel like a fish that has just realised the importance of water.

Sentences tell us the meanings of things.

For a thought to be a great thought, it has to be made of great sentences.
The sentence is mighty! A well-crafted sentence can convey a lot of information and change the outcome of a story or even the world.
Also, I love the illustration!
I really like that illustration too! And the thoughts on the sentence. Yet again your email has got me thinking.
