How to Add Variety to Sentences

One easy way to add flair to your writing style is to vary the pattern of your sentences. Try these strategies that add interest without sacrificing meaning or correct grammar:

  • Start with a description. (Dangling over the cliff, Martha considered her options.)

  • Combine sentences by inserting one idea into another. (Martha, who hated heights, looked at the ground.)

  • Cut unnecessary words. (The mountain was 3,000 feet high in altitude.)

  • Look for strong verbs. (Strolled or rushed instead of went, for example)
