Transition words are words that you can use to move the story forward or back in time. Many times people say 'and,' 'then,' 'so,' or 'next' when they are telling a story aloud. When you are writing, it makes your story, or essay more interesting to read if you use different words besides 'and,' 'then,' and 'next'.
Write a description of your typical day. Show the passing of time with language that avoids the cliche time transitions listed above.
