Always write short paragraphs which should not be more then 80-100 words why I am saying is because the shorter the paragraph the more digestible it will for readers, if you see short paragraphs is also good in terms of content readability.
Try to explain and break down the topic in multiple section to make a lengthy or long article in a shorter paragraph.
I also use short paragraphs on all of my articles you are reading this article make sure you observe the lengths of the paragraphs you will find all are shorts paragraphs. This is also a hack on how to write an article.
