  1. 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:

    #1 - Prewriting: Brainstorm, research, plan, outline, thesis statement

    #2 - 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.

    #3 - 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?

    I. You can use this to get yourself started on a thesis statement: Many authors use historical events to develop their historical novels.

    II. Please repost when you have a thesis statement drafted and at least a general outline.

  2. Do not start with the introduction!

    First, outline your answer and the reasons for it. Be sure to include details from the book to illustrate your reasons.

    Next, write your thesis statement.

    Then, write the body of your essay, using your outline as a guide.

    After you've written the body of your essay, your introduction should be pretty easy.
