“When writing fiction, one of the issues that arise is how to structure the paragraphs. This is very important because paragraphs help the reader to assimilate whatever is written better and to process the writing in their minds. This increases their comprehension and hence, enjoyment of the book.

Good paragraphing also greatly assists your readers in following a piece of writing. You can have fantastic ideas, but if those ideas aren’t presented in an organized fashion, you will lose your readers (and fail to achieve your goals in writing).
