Skill: Labyrinthine Sentence

A labyrinthine is a complicated irregular network of passages or paths that is difficult to find a way out of; a dungeon maze.

A labyrinthine sentence is a long ,complicated, purposefully run on sentence. It is used to show time passing quickly or action happening rapidly. When we read, we pause at the end of a sentence. A labyrinthine sentence prevents us from pausing.  It has nearly the opposite effect of a creative sentence fragment.

Here are some examples of labyrinthine sentences: Skill labyrinthine sentences
