The Elevator Puzzle is a very real effect, but can lead to feelings of paranoia: "Why is the elevator going the wrong way whenever I want it"?
I do blame Microsoft Word (and any other word-counting word processor) for breaking text by the obvious characters such as ' ' [blank], ',' [comma], and ';' [semi-colon]. Those are perfectly reasonable choices, but math articles have lots of 1-letter symbols.
Regardless, the article is a bit long.
Today's writing tip is to break up long text with headings and images. This reassures your readers that you are, indeed, making progress.
