Now it's time to move from narrative writing, which is based on sentences, to informative writing, which is based on paragraphs. The good news is that the same system that you learned in the first course in this series, “The Sentence,” applies to paragraphs. You’ll learn how to sequence your thoughts, how to get from one point to the next, and how to be super detailed in order to clinch your presentation. If you have ever been told “It’s not organized” or “Be more specific,” this is your course.
