The rules that I will put is that the first paragraph I should know the reader what’s the topic is going to be about. The first paragraph must engage the reader’s attention. Should have one main topic which is (the “thesis”) that is clear in the introduction and conclusion. Always, start with something short and easy to engage with. Prove to your reader that you’re providing value, make it easy for your reader to be drawn in. Every time I’m writing something I get confused organizing my ideas, like there’s too many ways of organizing that I waste time thinking of how to put it, or how it sounds better.
Ross mention to focus on the introduction to get reader’s attention and then organize your writing strategically. A good introduction would take any reader’s attention but when the intro starts getting longer and longer could make the reader get bored. Also, Rose points out how students can be so caught up in what they’re supposed to write, but never actually get to writing because they have no idea where to start because of all the rules given from different teachers.
I look more like Laurel, she’s not the only one who make a mistake including a paragraph on an issue that was never mentioned in the topic paragraph. Sometimes I get out of the topic because I get excited and I really want to say it and I want to people know my experience or my knowledge about X situation.
