Writing is like driving a car. It’s relatively easy, but a lot of people write carelessly, even recklessly. Let us assume for the moment, however, that you have negotiated the fundamentals: you can steer a sentence along, stopping, with a full stop, when you need to stop, and changing gear, in the sense of introducing a comma, when you have to turn a corner, change speed or make an adjustment in a sentence. With a little bit of practice and particularly if you think about what you are doing as you proceed, you will find yourself in control of these basic manoeuvres.
