Is there a reason you continued your lines with a visual break, the dash, instead of just starting…

That’s a debate I had with myself for sure. It was actually a superficial reason — I was using Notegraphy for the graphics, and sometimes my seven syllables would spill onto two lines and look sloppy when I hit enter after each line. It wasn’t immediately clear where one line ended and another began. Then I thought back to being a kid and reading along with song lyric books that came with CDs, where the artist would sometime use slashes to differentiate between lines. I liked that, and thought it would help make my syllable splits easier to read.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

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