In many ways we now come to the main event of this book. This is because the bulk of your essays will comprise body paragraphs. Compared with introductions, however, the structure of paragraphs is much more variable. But this is not such a bad thing, as this is where the art of essay writing really makes itself felt! This is where you must make decisions about how best to present the knowledge you have gained and make your arguments. Having said this, there are a number of guidelines which can help you improve your paragraphs. This chapter will discuss a number of these. The following chapter will introduce some of the many ways you can structure your paragraphs. As has been said several times now, if what you write does not obviously help you answer the question and does not support your thesis (if you have one), then you should not be writing it. Unfortunately, it is the lot of all writers to put energy into producing text which must, in the end, be deleted.
