Good writing should be clear and easy to follow. Each sentence should follow on from the last in a logical, sensible way. Conceptual continuity is required if one doesn’t want the reader to get confused. So, here’s the problem: I’m having some trouble with that. (I won’t tell you exactly how long it’s taken me to write this paragraph, but it was a surprisingly long time!)
Writing is a skill; skills fade without practice. I haven’t been writing a whole hell of a lot recently, and it feels like waaaay more work than it used to. I’m pretty rusty at this point, and it feels weird.
