I hope that my 7 power rules for dramatic sentences have been of interest to you and perhaps even a bit of help. I know that writing effective prose is a challenge.

Right now I'm watching a 4 DVD set of lectures from U of IA's The Teaching Company. It's titled: Building Great Sentences. If you watch for their sales, you can get it for less than $100. I'm finding it quite interesting. www.Teach12.com

Another two books you might try:
1-Style Toward Clarity and Grace by Jos. W. Williams
2-The Art of Styling Sentences, 20 Patterns for Success by
Marie L Waddell

In conclusion: These seven rules are the touchstones of dramatic sentences. And, once you can create dramatic sentences, you'll be able to use those sentences to build evocative stories and articles -- and make sales.
