After writing down the key words, you must use a comma so it will be easier for readers to understand the meaning of your sentence. A period is not recommend because it would impact your sentence in negative way. The purpose of using a comma is turn one sentence into two with different contents.
4) Place a command to complete your sentences:
In this step, you have to put a command from the key words that you have written. This is the last step but not least because it would create an effect on your sentence. A correct order of words and commands will lead your sentence into perfect one which is easy to read by other people.
