In reviewing my recent piece, Oasis found that I began a lot of sentences with conjunctions, and made this comment. After looking at my work, I could see what he was talking about, but I wanted to know exactly why the conjunctions were causing trouble, and so I kept searching, and I found this website. http://www.gerrysch.com/cle/handbook/10_between_among_conjunctions.html This is the part about conjunctions. This person says that it can get annoying, but he still doesn't say exactly why. But looking at this paragraph, I was able to discover it for myself. When you begin a sentence with a conjunction, it's typically because that sentence is part of the same thought as the previous sentence. When you do this, though, you're creating a pause in the flow of information by putting ". But " in the middle of the thought. If you do this enough, the reader begins to feel a little jolt every time it happens. All you are really doing is making the reader stop when it isn't necessary. I'm very excited about this, because I feel I've learned something very in-depth and technical about writing, so I wanted to share that with everyone.
