Hi Cody McGraw! Hemingway is my first thought. His lines usually follow a similar structure — a lot of other easy reads too. The line below is an example from a Nobel winning The Old Man and the Sea.

“He looked at the sky and saw the white cumulus built like friendly piles of ice cream and high above were the thin feathers of the cirrus against the high September sky.”

This sentence is long but follows the structure mentioned in the formula. Even if you break it into smaller segments, the formulas still holds.

I have to mention that writing rules and suggestions are well… writing rules and suggestion. Nobody can tell you the ultimate formula. Violate the rules before writing something criminal.
