Sometimes while writing a story, I like using short sentences. But I think I may be breaking a dozen punctuation rules while doing that! For example, this text. I figured I had had enough. I narrowed my eyes, briskly. There was a skill to it you know; narrowing ones eyes. I whispered amongst the stars, “Oye where did you run off to?” My ears perked. My limbs jumpy. My insides tangled. Ready to attack. Or run. Whatever the situation called for. A faint harrowing noise came by. I heard it. Gushing like the wind. Laughing like the stream. Cluck-cluck, I clucked my tongue. I SHALL NOT BE LAUGHED AT. I firmly shook my head, and I pounced. It took centuries for me to cross the bridge. Decades to land on the other side. But I was finally there. And I saw him. His nose a-quivering. His tail a-shivering. A grin on my face, I lunged. *Gulp* That was the end of his story. I licked my paws clean. Never get blood on your hand, they say. Those wise creatures. The stars. I am doing this completely wrong? Should I use commas, etc and start joining my tiny sentences? Also, this is my first post here, so please forgive me if this type of question has already been covered or something.
