Is it correct to use “and” at the beginning of a paragraph or a sentence?

by Jana Johnson



While there is no rule against using a conjunction to begin a sentence, it is important to be wary of overuse which can make a paragraph sound choppy. It is also useful to consider whether the intent is a more formal or casual paper. Frequently beginning sentences with conjunctions like "and" or "but" can create a more informal feel.
