To put everything in six sentences is not easy.
Very few can do it.
Too many use punctuation.
They make paragraphs of words.
What happened to the challenge?
To make it right, and pure?

I like the idea of taking a long post and trying to break it down to its essence and have it remain palatable sentence by sentence. I'm doing something like it now with "Sunday Driver" by trying to make scenes from the short story into natural-flowing excerpts and still have the sense of forward motion without having missed too much. This is something new for me, and I have 6S to thank for it.
Angela's right. I've written long and short and like both. It's whatever the story needs that determines.
As for the challenge to make it right and pure, what challenge? 6S has never issued such. And what does right and pure mean?
Ah heck, I love to edit stuffs but my worse bit is comma, semi-colon, colon.
Yeah, I have a lot of problems with comma's. I should know better.
Is it incomplete? We know what you're talking about. I just wouldn't have put the comma between right and and.
Those long sentences make reading a chore. I wonder if one post could be chosen and made into a more consise six sentences without losing meaning? Now there's a real challenge.
(I noticed that no one has mentioned that my last sentence is incomplete. :>) )
I know. I so want tot write something concise and clear and complete, but I just can't do it without my long sentences. Yours is perfect, you got what you were trying to say across perfectly and succinctly.
Ah, well. It's like the difference between haiku and Hiawatha. Both can be beautiful or not, depending on the author, but you make a good point. However, I do not agree that there is a right or a pure, only a well-crafted or not.
It is difficult to keep from being pulled into those long "sentences."
