If you have developed a strong thesis, collected your information, and planned your essay with an outline, you should be ready to draft your paragraphs.
One technique recommended is to write your body paragraphs first; then write your introduction and conclusion. This way you will draft an introduction and conclusion that match like bookends. Also, writers have the tendency to write too much in the introduction that should be in the body paragraphs.
Once the body of your essay is written, it may be easier for you to decide just how to introduce it.
