    In this crazy, mixed-up world of ours, transitions glue our ideas and our essays together. This handout will introduce you to some useful transitional expressions and help you employ them effectively.

    In both academic writing and professional writing, your goal is to convey information clearly and concisely, if not to convert the reader to your way of thinking. Transitions help you to achieve these goals by establishing logical connections between sentences, paragraphs, and sections of your papers. In other words, transitions tell readers what to do with the information you present to them. Whether single words, quick phrases, or full sentences, they function as signs that tell readers how to think about, organize, and react to old and new ideas as they read through what you have written.

    The most convincing ideas in the world, expressed in the most beautiful sentences, will move no one unless those ideas are properly connected. Unless readers can move easily from one thought to another, they will surely find something else to read or turn on the television.

    Providing transitions between ideas is largely a matter of attitude. You must never assume that your readers know what you know. In fact, it''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''s a good idea to assume not only that your readers need all the information that you have and need to know how you arrived at the point you''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''re at, but also that they are not quite as quick as you are. You might be able to leap from one side of the stream to the other; believe that your readers need some stepping stones and be sure to place them in readily accessible and visible spots.

    Writing a Narrative composition appeals to one of humankind''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''s basic instincts, the impulse to share stories. Sometimes the aim of the story-teller is simply to entertain, to provide a moment of escape from the business of the day or the horrors of the night, but sometimes the aim of the story-teller is to instruct, to help others in their understanding of something. The best part of teaching in this way is that our listeners'''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''' natural resistance to heeding the words of others is low and they are not always aware that they are being taught anything until it''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''s too late – we''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''ve got them.

    The skills needed to narrate a story well are not entirely the same as the skills needed to write a good essay. Some wonderful short fiction writers are not particularly good essayists and vice versa. Still, it is useful to look at those elements that make up a good narrative and know how to apply what we learn toward making our essays as dramatic as possible whenever that is appropriate.

    Paragraph writing remains one of the most important parts of writing. The paragraph serves as a container for each of the ideas of an essay or other piece of writing. Paragraphs are versatile and can take many forms that strengthen your writing, provide variety for readers, and help readers to organize the ideas you present.

    While it is true that a paragraph may be of any length, it is most common for an essay paragraph to be at least 3-5 sentences long and to be no longer than half a typed, double-spaced page. Journalism paragraphs (newspapers and magazines) tend to be 1-3 sentences long. Some paragraphs in books, especially technical treatises, might go on for several printed pages.

    Your written report, whether it is a creative, three-paragraph essay, or it is an extensive research paper , must be organized in a way that presents a satisfying experience for the reader. Sometimes it just seems impossible to make a paper flow—but that generally happens because your paragraphs aren’t arranged in the best possible order.

    The first step toward creating "flow" is making sure your paragraphs are put together in a logical order. Many times, the first draft of a report or essay is a little choppy and out of sequence.

    I assume this is creative writing. So your first paragraph should include a hook, a hook is anything attention grabbing. Your hook can be a question such as: Do you ever wonder what people enjoy doing? Obviously, that is not the strongest hook and I m sure you could think of a better one. Also in the intro paragraph include a thesis: Your thesis should include your opinion. The topic of the essay and your stance should essentially be the thesis. Such as: Do you consider third world countries to be civilized or uncivilized? (Essay Topic) Thesis: Third world countries are civilized because of their complex economy, government and cultural attributes. Your thesis could be something like: During my free time I enjoy talking, playing on the computer and reading. A standard academic paper (for creative writing) consists of one intro paragraph, three body paragraphs and conclusion. Your three body paragraphs can be made stronger by adding transitions. Here is a website with a list of transitional phrases: http://writing2.richmond.edu/writing/wweb/trans1.html Example of transitions used in a sentence: ALTHOUGH I have been told that doing drugs is harmful to my health, I still enjoy it. For each body paragraph state what the topic is: During my free time I enjoy talking with my friends. Each body paragraph should only focus on one topic, so you can make one paragraph about talking, one about the computer and your third about reading. For your conclusion, restate your thesis in different words and finish strong. Since this is creative writing, you can use an end like "In conclusion.." Also word choice is key to getting an A. Try not to be repetitive when describing a hobby, you can switch it up like: I enjoy conversing with my friends during my lunch hour. Make sure you proofread, I never proofread and it screwed me over several times. Good Luck.
