a: Paragraph ~
b: a neglected species

What:

"Lately, I'm trying to get into the paragraph, because I feel that the paragraph is like a neglected species. There seems to be a whole cult of sentence worshippers out there and paragraphs are kind of slipping under the radar. So I've started collecting paragraphs and I'd like to do something with them at some point. There is a shape of the paragraph that is unique, too. Paragraphs can do things that sentences don't. It's almost the difference between a short story and a novel."
