Writing to please the reader’s ear


I picked this up on Facebook from Writing about Writing.

It would be great to have this sort of skill. To be able to make the writing itself attractive, even beautiful, quite apart from the subject.

It certainly drives home the message about varying sentence length. Now I would like to see something similar to illustrate the need to make our sentences more active – less passive. That is a continual problem for most scientists and the habit is hard to change.
