Logical flow within paragraphs
Logical flow should also occur within each PARAGRAPH. This means the move from one sentence to another should be logical. The order in which information should be presented needs to keep the reader centred on the focus of the paragraph, developing points upon this topic in a logically sequenced way. In other words, the text should flow smoothly as the focus of the whole text is made obvious and maintained.
Look at the smooth movement of information in this paragraph. New information in a sentence (info presented towards the end of the sentence) is used as the given information in the following sentence.
This example shows that one way to achieve logical flow within a paragraph is to link each sentence to sentences before and after it (by including common information). This sort of sequencing creates clear text that is very easy for readers to follow.
