Here is a great article on sentence slip-ups. The author outlines ten problems writers often have in structuring sentences:

1. Participle Phrases (Truthfully, I think this would be the one I struggle with the most.)

2. Run-ons

3. Fragments

4. “As” phrases

5. Unclear antecedents

6. Lack of variation

7. Lack of parallelism

8. Nominalizations

9. Flabby sentences

10. Subject/verb confusion
