Write a piece of prose in which you play around with varying paragraph lengths. Make at least 1 paragraph really short and at least 1 paragraph really long. What you write an be anything — an essay, story, whatever. The key is that it contains multiple paragraphs and that they are of varying lengths. Challenge yourself to create reasons for these lengths. Don’t let them be arbitrary. Really have a reason that these paragraphs need to be the length that they are.
