Often, the first draft is not the essay you originally envisioned. You might even discover that your ideas about your theme have changed as you have been writing. If you do not like the way certain sections are stated, re_arrange them. Once you are pleased with the body, make sure the conclusion and introduction still match it and complement the way you see your topic at this point. If not, rewrite them to fit the essay you did write and the way you see your topic now.
The introduction _ This may sound strange but saving the introduction for last is more advantageous than it may seem. Having written the body and the conclusion, you are now in the best position to tell the reader, as creatively as possible, what they are reading into. In the introduction, explain your thesis statement and how you are going to affirm it without being too specific. Do not use typical introductions such as"This essay is about..." or "The topic of this essay is..." or "I will now show that..." It is not only boring but also uncreative.
