Step 3: writing a first draft
Once you have a clear idea of your structure, it's time to produce a full first draft.To give your writing structure, use your outline as a framework. Make sure each paragraph has a clear central focus that ties into your overall argument.Hover over parts of the example, from a literary analysis essay on Mansfield Park, to see how a paragraph is constructed. The goal at this stage is to complete a draft, not to make everything perfect as you go. Once you have a full draft in front of you, you will have a clearer idea of where improvement is needed.
