Notice something buried in the sand, and when you look at it, see that it’s an old rusty metal box. Write a few paragraphs (or more if you wish) explaining some aspects of how you do it and why you do it so well. Suppose your reader is completely unaware of the subject. Don’t write an instruction manual, but try writing in a colloquial style, as if you were verbally explaining the process. Divide the steps in a way that allows the reader to understand exactly what to do, without using words in jargon.
