6 The reader does not know much about what the old man in this story looks like except that he has one blind eye. 7 In the second paragraph of "The Tell-Tale Heart," Poe establishes the man's obsession with that blind eye when he writes: "He had the eye of the vulture--a pale blue eye, with a film over it." 8 This "vulture eye" is evoked over and over again in the story until the reader becomes as obsessed with it as does the man. 9 His use of the vivid, concrete word "vulture" establishes a specific image in the mind of the reader that is inescapable.
7. Producing and organising ideas is one thing. Shaping ideas and the organisation of your writing is another. But often the most difficult part is starting a first draft.
6. The first stage in writing is producing ideas. It’s important to dedicate two or three minutes to carefully planning what you are going to say. Make a list of the points for and against. Remember that the key to writing a good balanced essay is to include as many arguments you disagree with as those you agree with. They should be noted impartially although in your conclusion you can say why you find one side more convincing than the other.
Ask a knowledgeable friend to review and comment on your essay
and to repeat back what you are trying to say. You may be surprised.

The conclusion is the last paragraph of the essay. This paragraph brings the essay to a close, reminds the reader of the basic ideas from the essay, and restates the thesis statement. The conclusion should not contain new ideas, as it is the summation of the content of the essay. The restatement of the thesis is a simpler form that the one originally presented in the introduction.
Introduction: Introductory Paragraph See, first, Writing Introductory Paragraphs for different ways of getting your reader involved in your essay. The introductory paragraph should also include the thesis statement, a kind of mini-outline for the paper: it tells the reader what the essay is about. The last sentence of this paragraph must also contain a transitional "hook" which moves the reader to the first paragraph of the body of the paper.
Before we finish, it is important to remember that the format of the five-paragraph essay is the foundation of nearly every other essay you'll write. When you get ready to write longer papers, remember that the job of the introduction and conclusion are just the same as they are in the five-paragraph essay. Also, when you write longer papers, change your idea of support from three body paragraphs to three (or two or four) body sections, with as many paragraphs as necessary in each section (just as you had as many sentences you needed in each body paragraph).
9. It’s important that you begin each paragraph with a main idea and then develop this idea. For a new idea, begin a new paragraph.
