  2. I agree, for the most part–except number 5. I think that depends on you type of audience. If you are writing for a…umm….less sophisticated audience or just plain news articles, then I agree. If not, then that rule is a myth. I once had a professor tell me paragraphs can be a sentence or ten pages, as long as it stays focused on a constant idea. I’ve written lengthy paragraphs for news articles and never once been told anything. I think I even had a four page paragraph on a term paper in college once, too.
