Hello, i'm writing an essay about how truth should be told because it will help materialize solutions to problems and difficulties, etc. Can you please help me start my introduction? I want to start it really interestingly but nothing really comes in mind... and also, for my conclusion am I just repeating what i said in the body paragraphs? wouldn't that seem too redundant? What should I do? Thank you so much! :D

How truth should be told? Plain, simple, straightforward, with clarity.
Wondering if you meant "why" truth, instead of "how" truth.
Introduction: You try this, we will critique.
Yes, the conclusion does restate what you said, but a creative writer really summarizes, and if restatement is done, it is simplified.

Yep I am writing about why truth should be told :) But is asking a question a good way to start an introduction? Maybe like "have you had an experience where..."?
