I belong to a writers club — 23 book authors and me. We read our stuff to each other, then sit back and listen to everybody’s critiques.

I write articles for Medium and read books only on my Kindle. So, one of my critiques of their chapter is usually about my reading experience on electronic media.

Here is my critique for this post:

Long paragraphs, though technically correct, detract from the reading experience.

==> Medium articles are not like writing text messages on a phone

==> They may be scanned instead of read if the paragraphs are long

==> Usually, my paragraphs make one main point

==> Sloppy writing and errors are easier for me, the writer, to see

I would split this post into about 5 paragraphs.

I have also discovered that I can edit a posted article, even a month later, if I see an error or want to improve something. It does not change the publish date.

Good Luck.
