Successful writers use a variety of sentences to make essays interesting and effective. If a writer uses too many simple sentences, the passage is often difficult to read. On the other hand, if a writer uses too many complex sentences, the passage becomes difficult to understand. A balance of simple, compound and complex sentences not only make an essay more readable, but also adds depth and meaning.
