What is the writing process?
The writing process is how writers begin and complete a writing project. It's often messy, time consuming, but also very rewarding! It includes brainstorming, drafting, revising, and editing.
Subject: English as a Second Language
What's the difference between "much" and "many"? How do I know which one to use?
We use "much" for non-count nouns (like sugar, air, water, etc.), and "many" for count nouns (like chairs, computers, hats, etc).
What's a thesis statement? My teacher says I need one, but I don't know what she wants. Is that the introduction?
Good guess! The introduction is actually your first paragraph (5-8 sentences). It includes a hook (attention getter), background, and thesis statement. The thesis statement, though, is usually *one* sentence, and it briefly tells your reader the purpose of your paper. It will depend a lot on your assignment type (or instructions), but most thesis statements do not begin with "In this essay I will..." Rather, the thesis makes a claim or opinion, something the body of your paper will prove or support.
