There are different rules for reading, for thinking, and for talking. Writing blends all three of them. (Mason Cooley)

There is nothing to writing!
Here is some information on parallel structures and here is some more. You can find many examples in famous quotes. Winston Churchill, for example, was quite adept at parallelism: The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries. Why not try this quiz on parallel constructions.
Have a look too at the criteria for assessing written work.
