Create an outline to help determine where key points, which are the topics of your paragraphs, should go. Organize key points in a logical fashion, so that each paragraph leads into the next in a way that makes sense, whether it's chronological order, order of importance or another approach.
Write topic sentences and conclusions for each paragraph. Introduce the main point of each paragraph before you write supporting sentences. Conclude each paragraph with a brief summary of the ideas you’ve just addressed.
Include transitional words and phrases to indicate the relationships between connected ideas. Place words and phrases such as “consequently” and “even though" at the beginning of paragraphs or sentences to guide the reader through your paper.
Repeat important words and phrases throughout the essay. Repetition helps connect paragraphs.
Read your paper, and rewrite it to tighten up the structure, word choice and transitions. Writing a second draft gives you a chance to perfect your work.
