(14 words is very difficult to do!)
Hello, Internet. Hello, Blog Readers.
If you can gather from the title, this blog will be book and movie reviews in 14 words or less. Why 14? Well, according to here and here, the average English sentence is 14 words and 14 word sentences are “fairly easy” to read. 17 words? That’s just “standard.” 11 words? “Easy.”
Still, why 14 words? It’s a challenge to get a point across in such little words, and you can never get a good idea of things without many details. This way, hopefully, it will be blunt and straight to the point.
I’m thinking the format will be:
And each of those will be 14 words or less.
So, to begin, 14 words or less about myself (And try not to make it sound like a personal ad):
Dense, sleepy, grad student, who enjoys killing time outside the lab with various activities. (14)
