Paragraphing is about arranging a piece of writing in order to make it clear and easy to read. The first sentence of a paragraph is known as the 'topic' sentence. It is the main point of, or introduction to, your paragraph. The next few sentences strengthen, draw out, or support, your point, so they must be about the same topic. The final sentence briefly summarizes your topic and leads into the next paragraph. Changes of topic, mood, or speaker always mean you should begin a new paragraph.
Paragraphs also make your writing easier to read. Have you ever been faced with a long block of text with no paragraphs? Just looking at the wall of words makes you less inclined to read it. Whereas adding paragraphs means you can have a breather between each one.
Try this English quiz to see how well you can use paragraphs.
