Paragraphs are wonderful tools for organizing ideas, and paragraph breaks can be excellent ways of giving your reader a moment to breathe between ideas. But paragraphs should not be islands of information unto themselves. Ideally, each paragraph leads into the next, giving us a sense of continuity and flow. (The best way to see this is to analyze some published writing that you think is effective. Look at how the writer moves from one paragraph to the next.)
