    About English writing logic

    Maybe you could say what you think the difference is, given that you have noticed something different. Or at least, say what you think Chinese logic is like. That will help us English speakers to make contrasts.
    In formal English writing, you should stick to the point, not get carried away with digressions, have a clear argument which you introduce at the beginning and then offer evidence for, and then draw all your thoughts together in a conclusion.
    How does Chinese writing logic work?

    May sometimes I write an article or a sentence in Chinese is smooth, but it seems not logical enough in English.
