Using transition words like ‘but’ or ‘however’ when you're shifting direction can make it easier for your readers to follow and make your sentences less abrupt.
Example: However, small transition words aren't the only option for making a message clear!
Establishing a rhythm of repetition that moves from the negative "I am not…" and "I cannot…" to the affirmative "I am..."
i.e. telling the reader what isn’t and then stating what is, or vice versa.
Beginning a paragraph with a quotation or explanation that builds on information from a previous paragraph.
i.e. giving a definite name or definition to a previously loose-fitting description.
