Technical Writing Skills – Tip of the Month (May 2017)

The Paragraph

A good document should have a clear structure. Dividing your document into multiple paragraphs will result in a document which is much easier for the reader to understand and will help deliver the message effectively.

  • Each paragraph should contain one idea.
  • Each new paragraph should begin with a topic sentence.
  • Follow the topic sentence with your analysis.
  • Close the paragraph with a transition sentence which rounds off the idea or links it to the next paragraph. Adhering to the above will bring about a significant improvement in the flow of your document.
