I am currently trying to achieve a better organization of my paragraphs. Usually improvements are fairly simple, but I do not know how to deal with one pattern that appears repeatedly. Consider this example:
When all references have been evaluated, the third stage replaces them with their definitions. There are two peculiarities that need to be addressed:
First, the search ...
The second specialty regards, ...
Here, I have two introductory sentences and an enumeration of two properties. Both properties make up good paragraphs on their own, but I wonder if I should break after the introduction (as seen above) or merge it and the first property.
In the former case, both paragraphs clearly stand out and are easy to parse and distinguish, but the introduction is short and does not carry any content on its own. In the second case, the enumeration is somewhat harder to see.
Is there a general consensus on how to deal with such a case?
