Construct a Draft
- Although a journal entry does not need a formal thesis sentence, making your central idea clear early on is important.
- Make sure that you introduce each new idea with a topic sentence. Follow that topic sentence with information or evidence that justifies your opinion, reflection, speculation, criticism, or agreement.
- Between individual sentences and between complete paragraphs, inserting frequent and appropriate transitions will help readers easily follow your narrative from one idea to the next.
