Balance in Writing

Lesson from How to Write Short.

Balance adds beauty to writing. When you balance a sentence, the power and versatility of the words become apparent. Balance works on the level of phrase, sentence and paragraph.


"Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee."

When you write, try to instill balance in your writing.
