Transitions

Transitions are usually one or several sentences that "transition" from one idea to the next. Transitions can be used at the end of most paragraphs to help the paragraphs flow one into the next.

EXAMPLE:

Shirley Jackson’s The Haunting of Hill House is considered to be the greatest haunted house novel all of all time. Many critics viewed the novel as a subversive social critique, commenting on how it demonstrates the dangers lurking in domesticity.

The novel was viewed as just a haunted house novel, according to some critics.

EXAMPLE:

In Stephen King’s novel The Shining, the Overlook hotel is a house possessed of a malevolent will and mind of its own. It seems intent on harming the characters in the novel.

Jack is the real threat in the house.
