Creative writing tip
Don't overuse I, the character's name, he, she or it.
Not: She ran through the rain. She had to get to her best friend's house. She had promised she would be there at eight.
But: Jane ran through the rain. She had to get to her friend's house because she had promised to be there at eight.
That is a good tip, Sarah, and you have also demonstrated how a complex sentence can effectively replace several simple sentences.
