If sentences are ships…

One sentence is like a rowboat, it can turn on a dime.

Two sentences is like a sailboat, it has to tack and work with something other than itself.

At about 8,000 words the number of sentences might be roughly 400. That feels like trying to turnĀ a super-tanker, but in reality it’s probably much more like trying to steerĀ a medium sized ferry.

At least now I seem to have a sense of the right direction, even if it is vague, and to stretch the nautical metaphor a bit further, I think I’m standing on the bridge now.
