I need help writing a paper. It's on the short story "the blind man" by Kate Chopin. It supposed to be on either theme or character. I don't even know how to start. Thanks!

    What do you want to say in your paper?

    What is your thesis statement?

    Scroll down to THEME and read the section, including examples. You can also read about CHARACTERIZATION, including Major characters and Minor characters.

    Your thesis statement must include factual information plus your position/opinion/stance. Without your position on the topic, it isn't a true thesis statement. So think of this sentence as the angle you want to take on the topic and what you intend to prove by the end of your paper. (If your statement is simply factual, then there's nothing to prove!)

    This is one of the very best places I've seen online to help students write good thesis statements. It shows you sentences that aren't thesis statements and how to turn each one into real thesis statements.

    When you've decided what to write about and have a thesis statement, please let us know. Post what you write.
