Well, an introduction is supposed to capture the attention of the reader, so it can be hard to start from the introduction when you aren t sure you know what you are going to say. I usually write the intro after I ve written the essay so I can set them up for what is about to come. So you don t want to start with "Bullying is bad". Even if true, it doesn t say much, like saying, "Water is good for a low-salt diet". Since you have no personal experience, I recommend you watch this famous video on bullying: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ltun92DfnPY While you watch, maybe pause it from time to time and try to imagine being that person in the story. Think about what that would feel like? Would you cry? Stay quiet? Yell? Try and hide? What if your best friend started siding with the others and you were left alone? Who would you turn to? What if that person you trust was gone and you were left alone? How would you cope? Hopefully as you practice being the person in the story and imagine the emotions, feelings, and thoughts, you ll have a better idea of what you think is important to say about the subject. When you have your ideas on paper, try to think of one or two sentences that describes the whole picture. If it works for you, don t be afraid to start with a question. Put your reader in the mood for what they are about to read, and make it an emotional idea, concept, that you bring to their attention. I hope that helps.
This is one of my favorite cause/effect quotes and I like starting with a quote. "A man s accomplishments in life are the cumulative effect of his attention to detail." -John Foster Dulles
