Hypotaxis and parataxis to connect ideas and control rytm

Hypotaxis and parataxis, what does that mean?

It’s basically about short (parataxis) and long sentences (hypotaxis), but more specifically it’s about the arrangement and subordination of clauses. I’ve got a bad habit of going for hypotaxis all the time, but I’m striving to interject parataxis into my writing some more. Work in progress.

I need to mind mind my lifelong addiction to hypotaxis. Great explainer!
