When we begin to write there are flaws on style and meaning. Rhythms are missing or are too accentuated, too imperfect. Very short sentences follow choppy and long sentences. A long sentence can then become several short sentences.
The style’s errors doesn’t make the reader understanding. To re-read himself and put himself in the reader’s position makes it possible to find out if that we write tells him everything. We can add sentences, reading again the text. Then we add a rhythm to that we wrote.
But often mistakes of style are recurrences like not enough participles, verbs that can be replaced by common names, explanations too long, words that have the same meaning in the same sentence.
We must simplify that is poorly written adding meaning. Then you have to watch the sentences’ rhythm to avoid touching it. Watching this rhythm and adding allows you to find flavor.
