Some say that run on sentences should be avoided, because a run on, as opposed to just a long sentence, drags the reader into an unusual territory past the expected syntactic finish line, where they can’t help but ache for the period, a moment of rest, but won’t find it, getting pulled along, short of breath, to wherever the run on decides to stop, because it knows the finish line is not the most interesting place, sometimes it is better, even if it takes a while, to go a little beyond it.
