With the pencil or pen. . .

And…?

  • Look at the words that begin each sentence.

  • Are you alternating kinds of beginnings?

  • Are you using a variety to words to start the beginnings?


Consider

Consider. . .

  • Making changes when you were repetitious.

  • Alternating sentence beginnings to vary the sentence structure. (Use more than just one or two sentence patterns.)

  • Combining simple sentence and their ideas into complex sentences to reflect the sophistication and complexity of your ideas.
