Do you remember being told at school that you can’t start a sentence with a conjunction i.e. a joining word like And, But, Yet? Well here’s a shocker: you can.
If you want to be really formal you might want to use In addition or Nevertheless.
But for the rest of us mere mortals starting a sentence with And or But is perfectly acceptable. In fact copywriters do it all the time as it makes copy informal, snappy and really gets a point across.
Just try not to use a conjunction at the end of a sentence. Yeah..but..no..but..and yeah…but
