Please Don't Ask For An Eight Word Sentence

I read Peter DeWitt's post this morning....A Word or Two...About Writing  
He wrote about Several Short Sentences About Writing by Verlyn Klinkenborg.  I agree that the book provokes some thinking about how we teach writing and even thought about using it for my graduate course in writing!  What I took from the book was a reminder that we need to encourage high quality - not longer sentences and stories.  There is power in even one sentence. Even a short one. It's the content that makes it rich - not the length of the sentence.

Writing is like life. (4 word sentence)
