Order of Sections of a Draft

When you’re writing, you may think everything needs to be perfectly organized whenever you first start. That the thesis needs to be at the beginning, all the body paragraphs need to be in order, and you need to have a conclusion at the end. But that’s not true.

Whenever you’re drafting, whenever you’re working on a first or one of your drafts in progress, you have flexibility. You want to be working on any part that you feel comfortable and confident with. You want at least get that work out of the way.

You can rearrange the body paragraphs later. You may not even know what your thesis statement is right away. You may still be formulating it, but you can get the body paragraphs ready, knowing somewhat of what your thesis is going to be, and then come up with it later.
