How do writers avoid using “they” as a singular pronoun?

Benjamin has noticed that writers will make their subjects plural in order to justify using “they.” This doesn’t always work, so others have used “he or she” or “he/she.” Benjamin's solution is to figure out how to reword a sentence so it doesn’t have a pronoun at all. He’s found it to be a better and tighter sentence when doing so.
