6.1.2 Advice on organising your writing
Look at paragraphs carefully when you read texts and notice how the writer has organised them. They should start with a sentence that ‘signposts’ the main topic, with all other sentences leading on from this.
Experienced writers use linking words and phrases to organise their argument.
Note them in texts you read and practise using them in your writing to help it ‘hang together’.
Find the linking words used in the above exercise – and others you can think of in a thesaurus (a book listing synonyms – words of similar meaning) and make your own list of useful linking words.
