… Verlyn Klinkenborg and Creative Destruction | BREVITY's Nonfiction Blog.

To Klinkenborg, the sentence is foundational. Creative vocabulary languishes in a shoddy sentence. Tricks of the trade bend and buckle when the glue is weak.

If a sentence stumbles without its neighbor, it has no business on the page.
