I'm writing a paper about re-enlisting during the American Revolution, even though I'm miserable with the sick and dying all around me. I need to come up with a good grabber to start my paper with. Can you help?

  • U.S. history -

    Do not start with the introduction!

    What do you intend to say in your paper? Have you brainstormed? Have you written an outline?

    You'll undoubtedly think of a grabber as you are writing the body of your paper.

    My paper is on 3 reasons I would stay and fight 1. with so many men being sick or dying, I will stay and fight
    2. freedom doesn't come cheap and anything of value is worth fighting for 3. the Congressional Committee that G. Washington brought over to Valley Forge will now help us--I will re-enlist
    Again, my problem is the "grabber"

    DON'T start any paper's first draft by writing the introduction! How can you introduce a paper that you haven't written yet?

    Follow the writing process, whether you're writing for science, history, English, or whatever:

    Prewriting: Brainstorm, research, plan, outline, thesis statement

    Writing: Write first draft by starting with section II of your outline; write the introduction after the body of the paper is written; write the conclusion last.

    Polishing: Revise, concentrating first on the body of the paper, then the intro, then the concl (revision = making sure ideas are logical and sequential and support your thesis); proofread (spelling, grammar, usage, etc.)

    Do you have a thesis yet? Have you done your brainstorming (and maybe research) yet? Have you written an outline?
