Writing an essay: how to introduce your topic

Okay, so you’ve got your thesis all laid out, and your outline is complete, and you’re ready to start writing the text you’ll actually turn in as your essay.

And yet for some reason you find yourself staring at a blank page on a computer screen, tapping your fingers and thinking about ways to get out of having to write your paper at all. What happened?

You must be unsure how to introduce your topic.

Many people think that an introduction has to be some sort of humorous flourish of genius. It really doesn’t. It can be as simple as a few general remarks about the nature of the topic at hand.

In the course of writing your essay, you selected a topic and created a thesis about it. Ideally, you also did some research. This means you’re probably at least slightly well-versed in what you’ll be writing about. In fact, the more you know, the better you can introduce your topic.

But if you’re suffering from that perennial enemy of essayists everywhere, writer’s block, here are a few basic types of introductions that can help you to at least get started (and once you get started, finishing becomes that much easier).

With these in mind, you may find it easier now to get started writing that essay. So grab your thesis and your outline and get started. Procrastination is the other great enemy of the writer (and everybody else, for that matter), so the sooner you sit down and make yourself get started, the sooner you’ll be finished.
