Good writers make their writing flow by using different kinds of sentences.

You want your writing to be easy to read and follow.  It should flow so smoothly and sound so interesting that people want to read it aloud!  When your sentences don't flow, your writing sounds choppy and flat.  Your reader would not want to read it aloud.
