Everything you need to know about writing a sentence, and I do mean EVERYTHING
This essay, by Gary Lutz, from the January 2009 issue of The Believer is a fantastically detailed analysis of what makes a sentence sing; what makes a sentence do more than simply convey information as briskly as possible. It contains close readings of specific sentences from some very interesting writers. It contains enough mind-blowingness to make you re-examine most of what you think you know about writing.
