The first draft of the introduction has a number of problems. These are:

  • it is not clear and concise
  • there are too many disjointed ideas
  • it is repetitive
  • there are grammar and punctuation problems
  • there is no clear development of the arguments to support the thesis statement.

The first draft is an important part of the essay writing process. Now that you have created something to work on, it is time to re-read and re-draft your work.
