Composing My Thoughts

Speaking of thinking...

Remember when you were writing simple essays in school and you had to start with a thesis?  Once you chose your thesis (for without a good thesis, there is no good essay), you used three pieces of supporting evidence to prove that your thesis was solid.  Soon you had a five-paragraph paper:  An introduction, a paragraph for each piece of supporting evidence, and a conclusion.

It seems to me that if I, as an adult, would remember that lesson in composition, if I would organize my thoughts like the essay outline, then my words would be much more credible.
