One Paragraph Down, the Rest to Go!

Posted By: Dick Schutz on June 20, 2006
 
Kilbourn gives very good advice. The only point I'd add is that the first paragraph--and the fianl paragraph--are best written last. As Kilbourn says, they are "about" the thesis, not "within" the thesis. And you don't have full information of what the thesis is until it has been crafted.
