  17. Paragraph • Topic SentenceWriting is difficult for me and most students. • Supporting sentencesFirst of all, we don’t like to display our thoughts on paper. Second, we worry about whether we’ll use the correct grammar and appropriate vocabulary. Third, we may have to write a second or third draft and we’d prefer not to doing that. • Concluding sentence We will write this paper if we absolutely have to, so make it interesting.
