Call me a hippie outsider from California, but... We used to do this every six months were I lived. There would be a big gathering, we'd all get trashbags and these little mop handles with nails in the end, and the county would open up the dump and allow us to take as many trashbags there as we needed to for no charge. They'd even track the weight so we could celebrate how much we picked up.

I think this is the community's job. Why depend on the government to do everything?

This sentence has five words. Here are five more words. Five-word sentences are fine. But several together become monotonous. Listen to what is happening. The writing is getting boring. The sound of it drones. It's like a stuck record. The ear demands some variety. Now listen. I vary the sentence length, and I create music. Music. The writing sings. It has a pleasant rhythm, a lilt, a harmony. I use short sentences. And I use sentences of medium length. And sometimes when I am certain the reader is rested, I will engage him with a sentence of considerable length, a sentence that burns with energy and builds with all the impetus of a crescendo, the roll of the drums, the crash of the cymbals--sounds that say listen to this, it is important.

So write with a combination of short, medium, and long sentences. Create a sound that pleases the reader's ear. Don't just write words. Write music.
