STARTING SENTENCES WITH CONJUNCTIONS

1 Oct

Y’all,

As you remember, we got into a bit of a discussion about starting sentences with “and” and “but” and “because,” etc. I know there are English teachers out there who rail against that tactic, but here are links to two lengthy articles for the Spinal Column Newsweekly I wrote in the past three months and demonstrate ways to incorporate that strategy. Notice how such sentences can keep the momentum of an essay or article — even long ones such as these — running smoothly and therefore make it so the essay/article/paper doesn’t seem to flag at all. They maintain energy.
