Simple Sentences

Your player is reading your text, but they’re also playing a game. They may be only reading with half their attention, or skimming quickly. They may want to skip to the next storylet.

So, keep your sentences simple. Use short, simple constructions. Don’t write with a lot of semi-colons or parentheses or use endless clauses strung together with commas. Keep it simple and easy to read.
