How to Write a Coherent Article

One quality of a good article is coherency.

My way of achieving this is by being straight to the point; and using only words and sentences within a paragraph that makes the thought complete.

I don't use flowery words, as I feel this will not add value to the article. As much as possible, eliminate such in your work or at least put it to a minimum. This advice has statistical basis as well: "the more you say, the greater the chances of error." Especially if you are not sure of what you are writing, writing less will be better.

It takes discipline to constantly examine your work, checking each and every word for the purpose it plays in the paragraph.

In the end, it will pay off. This will result to an article, where the paragraphs inside, will possess clarity. The message or points pursued by the article will be easily understood by the reader.

Your readers will appreciate an article that they don't have to read and re-read just to get the point.
