Write Short Sentences

Austin photographer Kirk Tuck highly recommended this excellent book about writing:

Writing short sentences will help you write strong, balanced sentences of any length. Strong, lengthy sentences are really just strong, short sentences joined in various ways. You don’t have to write short sentences forever. Only until you find a compelling reason for a long sentence That’s as clear and direct as a short sentence.
