Step 1: Start With a General Outline
3. reminder to walk
The picture above is an example from a narrative essay I wrote. it's enough to understand what will be told, but not enough to know exactly what happened.
Done, an Informal Outline. after the informal outline is done move on to the next step.
Step 2: It's All About the Sentences.
Thesis Statement: Dogs are mans best friend
General Statement: dogs are great companions
Supporting: For example, dogs are used to give patients company, so they have something to look forward to.
To explain, a General Statement is what should be used to start a paragraph, which is followed by supporting sentences.
Also an example above showing similar. red is a general statement, green is supporting.
The Topic and supporting sentences are repeated until all topics have been addressed. Also don't forget to add the thesis statement. When finished move on to the next step.
