My sentence length varies greatly depending on the circumstances. When my characters are doing something, particularly something that is either rapid or requires their full concentration, my sentences become short to reflect the pace of what is occurring - either in thought or deed.
There are times when my sentences become longer, in pace with the pace of the tale or as a reflection of the character thinking these thoughts. Some of my characters, having a military background, think in shorter sentences, while others tend to wax a bit more poetic in their rumination.
I go with whatever feels right to the character and situation. Sometimes a longer sentence will improve the flow of the narrative.
