I am questioning my writing style. I find I cannot understand the subject and predicate in every sentence. I can't understand one subject and one predicate in all sentences only. I can understand after the first sentence which has a subject and a predicate fine, but after the first sentence, then the story. I am beginning to doubt my writing style, for I cannot understand any order in my writing after the first sentence. Either I am missing something or I should write what I feel is right for me, which is this thread.

I am a fanatic about words and placing them into the right order in the sentence, for that alone is good. But I see no order with every sentence have a subject and predicate, first sentence yes the rest including the paragraphs, no the story yes. I am also a nut when editing and in hopes I have the right writing description for editing/critiqing. That alone will help me see where I am missing something. Thank you for your patience's.

[FONT=Calibri, serif]Some would argue that in order to be good, they must. But, I would say that some of any art must be innately known; cannot be taught. That part of writing that is innate becomes your style and if that is rudimentary than your writing is alas, doomed to be rudimentary.[/FONT]
