    Letter writing.

    My first part of writing is to give the piece a subject, then explain why I wrote about it. I have noticed that each writer has a different way of introducing the subject and the sentence according to their writing style. How do I know what is the first word I am going to use in the first sentence is and the following words as well? My thoughts are all words should equal to the sentence and the words written in that sentence.

    I am confused about the second or third paragraph having a different subject which would be in the same first paragraph you are writing in. Wouldn't that change the subject of the original first paragraph? Edit, please and thoughts. Paul

    Re: Letter writing.

    If you are writing a letter to your friend, put thoughts about one topic in one paragraph, and start a new paragraph for a new topic.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
