Paragraphs: Unity of theme

One of the key decisions in writing a good paragraph is knowing when to stop and start a new one. It is often useful to identify the topic sentence in each of our own paragraphs, then ask if every sentence relates to it. Those which do not, can be cut or moved into other paragraphs.
