In this final paragraph, do you see how the writer reminds readers of how the subject of the biography inspires others to be better athletes and why he earned the name 'Lightning Bolt'?
This brings Lighting Bolt's story all the way back to beginning.You don't have to begin with a topic sentence, but you'll need to make sure you have one somewhere in the paragraph.The final sentence of your paragraph should signal to readers that you're done talking about that topic, and the sentences in between provide facts.The first paragraph, or introduction, is very important when writing any essay.Without an introduction, your readers will have no idea what you are writing about! As a general rule we do not censor any content on the site.We will not remove any content for bad language alone, or for being critical of a book.Let's look at an example of an introduction about Usain Bolt: With this introduction, did you notice the use of the rhetorical question, or a question that doesn't need an answer, in the first sentence?See how the question about how Usain Bolt got his nickname works to engage readers right off the bat?In this paragraph, you should try to include information about where your person was born, something about his or her family and how he or she began doing the interesting things you will include in the next paragraph.Your next paragraph should contain information about your subject's talents and accomplishments throughout his or her life.
