- 25. Repeat Key Words or Phrases: First Method <ul><li>Each new idea or example may seem to turn the essay in an unexpected new direction, making the essay seem to ramble. However, referring to the subject at various points of the essay by repeating certain key words or phrases associated with the subject pulls the reader back to the topic. </li></ul>
- 26. Carefully Placed Transitions: Method Two <ul><li>Time and place markers within the essay to introduce a series of examples will also help achieve topical coherence. </li></ul>
- 27. Engaging Readers <ul><li>Remember, readers have no pressing reason to read a reflective essay. </li></ul><ul><li>The writer’s goal is to create common ground with the reader—something must catch the reader’s eye—a hook. </li></ul>

- 32. Proofreading <ul><li>Remember, proofreading the final copy for spelling, grammatical errors and sentence formation makes all the difference in the world if the writer’s goal is to present their writing as something they care about. </li></ul><ul><li>If the writer doesn’t care, why would the reader? </li></ul>
- 33. And Finally—An Appropriate Quote <ul><li>“I see but one rule: to be clear.” </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Stendhal </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul>
