The Main Idea and the Many Hifaluting Words

When writing, focus on the main idea. Avoid adding subjects, topics or discussions in middle sentences as this make a paragraph vague and confusing. Observe coherence. The supporting and ending sentences should be related to the main sentence. The supporting paragraphs should be related to the main paragraph.

The use of too many hifaluting words prevents your readers to understand the message you wish to convey. One or two extraordinary words are fine but too many is a disaster.

Notice that in my first paragraph, I avoided the use of "you." If what you're writing is instructional as in this post and my previous posts, then it's OK to use "you."
