Order of Sections of a Draft

When organizing your paper, you know to set it up in the standard order of intro, body, and then conclusion. This is the standard form for most papers; however, is this the order in which you should write your paper? Not necessarily. It is best to start with the body and develop your thesis based on what you have written. This idea is somewhat flexible. If you do have an idea for a thesis ready to go, it is okay to start with that. It is mainly important to start where the work seems easiest. This is usually with the body paragraphs. By doing this, you are able to quickly make progress on your paper and you have a boost in morale that encourages more writing.
