Overview: writing cohesively

Writing cohesively means that your writing has a clear flow of ideas which enables your readers to move smoothly through your text with a minimum of effort.

To achieve this flow, each of the ideas you present needs to be clearly connected to the ideas which precede and follow it.

If you make these connections well, your writing will be easy to read and it will appear convincing. It will be difficult for your readers to break the chain of connections you have made and find fault with your argumentation.

If you do not make these connections well, your arguments will be difficult to follow. Your readers are not likely to take the trouble to try to figure out the connections themselves.
