These sentences come from the “supporting detail” sections within your outline. 10.

Remember that you are illustrating your point for the reader. 11. Finally, don’t forget your Conclusion. Simply wrap up your idea by returning to the topic sentence and adding one or two other thoughts or summarizing your entire paper. 12. See a sample Process Analysis
