    Write the paper first, then write the intro. How can you write an intro for a paper that hasn't been written yet??

    Follow the writing process steps:

    Prewriting
    ~brainstorming
    ~planning/outlining
    ~thesis statement writing

    Writing
    ~write the first draft OF THE BODY OF THE PAPER, using your outline as a roadmap
    ~after the body of the paper is done, write a first draft of the intro, with the thesis statement at the END of the intro paragraph
    ~after the first draft of the body and intro are done, write a draft of the conclusion

    Post-writing
    ~revise content to make sure all ideas flow smoothly and all paragraphs are sufficiently developed
    ~write second, third, etc., drafts
    ~proofread for mechanics
