173. Writing Sentences That Stick
May 14, 2021
Leandre Larouche

Many people have the unfortunate tendency to write confusing sentences. They put too much information or the information is in the wrong order. As a result, readers are confused and don’t feel convinced by the argument, if they get the argument at all. You need to remember that a sentence starts with someone doing something. If you don’t have someone doing something, you don’t have a sentence. Every time you write a sentence, ask yourself “who does what?” Then you can add as much context as is necessary, from the WHY to the WHEN to the WHERE, etc.
