Checklist for writing good paragraphs:— David Perell (@david_perell) August 27, 2020
• Focus on one idea
• Make that idea surprising
• Maximum of one long sentence
• Add a story, statistic, or example
• Key points at the beginning and the end
Break these rules when necessary, but that’s 90% of what you need to know.
