Present ideas in logical order, or order of importance to the reader
Translate numbers and otherwise clarify complex concepts with metaphor
Answer all questions and objections readers might have
Come up with fresh ways to approach even repetitive topics and messages (as opposed to writing the same old story over and over again)
