Then

Be care to keep from using “then” too much. This happened and then this happened and then this. Readers will grasp the sequential actions, usually, via contest.

Avoid: “John kissed Jane. Then, he buried his fingers in her hair.”
Try: “John kissed Jane. He buried his fingers in her hair.”
  • The “then” is implied and can easily be removed. We understand one happened and then the other happened.
