Creating a diagram or outline allows you to put pen to paper and start organizing your ideas.
Don't worry or agonize over organization at this point, just create a moderately organized format for your information.
The purpose of your essay is defined by the type of paper you're writing.
There are three basic types of essay papers: Once you have defined the purpose of your essay, it's time to brainstorm. Take some time to consider, contrast and weight your options.
Once you're done developing a thesis statement that supports the type of essay your writing and the purpose of the essay, you're ready to get started on your introduction.
The introduction is the first paragraph of the essay.
A thesis statement states or outlines what you intend to prove in your essay.
A good thesis statement should be clear, concise, specific, and takes a position.
