The Music of Words: Short sentences versus Long sentences

In writing and in speech, a period is what gives pause, be that may, a short pause at the end of a sentence or a longer pause at the end of a paragraph. It is differential to a comma that provides no pause, but a change in tone, similar to a side note or side thought. Like a musical composition, words are the notes while periods and commas are the breaks. Short sentences provide a more definitive statement. Long sentences, of 25+ words, are more complex with a rhythmic pattern directed by commas.

Which is better?

It depends on what you are writing.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
