The dos and don'ts of using repetition
- Repeat whatever you’re writing at least three times. If you only do it twice, it usually looks like an accident.
- Repeat for emotional effect or to show similarities between two otherwise different things.
- Use the same sentence structure for each repetition.
- Repeat something because you don’t think your readers will get it the first time.
- Repeat so you can *really* establish something as opposed to just establishing it.
- Get annoying.
