Writing a Paragraph

Here at Inframethodology, “writing a paragraph” has a very specific meaning, namely, spending 18 or 27 minutes composing at least six sentences and at most two-hundred words that say one thing you knew the day before. Not only should you have had the relevant knowledge, you should have known that you would be writing about it, at this very moment, the day before.  I am aware that paragraphs are sometimes brought about in other ways, but I am hesitant to describe these approaches as “paragraph writing”. On my approach, every time you write a paragraph–I mean really set out to write one–you are doing it in way that will not only produce a unit of scholarly writing but make you better at making such things. You are deliberately trying to support, elaborate or defend something you know in prose. This awareness will hone your craft.
