Weegy: A writer might fail to include a topic sentence, which could confuse a reader as to the main idea of the work. [ A writer might also might make common mistakes with punctuation, which can make the meaning of one's writing difficult to understand and follow. A writer can be sure to ask him- or herself what the topic of the piece is and make sure they can pick out their topic sentence. Being aware of that and looking for it can help avoid leaving it out. And to avoid punctuation errors, a writer can study the rules of punctuation, have someone else proofread his or her work, and use the Writer's Handbook as well. ]
