Hello, is writing the whole thing in an single printf command bad?

I did it on my own before watching the solution. I did it as such: console.printf("Your TreeStory: \n------------------\n %s is a %s %s . They are always %s %s.\n", name, adjective, noun, adverb, verb); Is this bad? Or do i pat myself on the back? Is there something against writing lines like this?

I would prefer:

console.printf("Your TreeStory: \n------------------\n");
console.printf("%s is a %s %s . They are always %s %s.\n", name, adjective, noun, adverb, verb);
