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!
