"All your clear and pleasing sentences will fall
apart if you don't keep remembering that
writing is linear and sequential, that logic is
the glue that holds it together, that tension
must be maintained from one sentence to the
next and from one paragraph to the next and
from one section to the next, and that
narrative - good old-fashioned storytelling - is
what should pull your readers along without
their noticing the tug."
