Question and answer
in your opinion at what point could making an observation halt or obstruct the writing process and why
Over the years I have noticed that the most common weakness on the content side of students' writing is a weak or nonexistent thesis. Your thesis- or theme or focus, all three mean the same thing- is important for a couple of reasons. [ First, your thesis is the one idea that you want to get across to your audience. In college writing, it is not enough for you to simply restate what an author
has said like you did when you wrote book reports in grammar school. Rather, you need to bring your own insight to your papers; you need to make an observation of your own about the subject matter. Second, your thesis glues together your paper. Instead of a rambling set of disconnected thoughts, a paper with a strong thesis builds around a central point. The difference between no thesis and a good one is the difference between a pile of bricks and a brick building. Without mortar, a thesis, a brick building soon becomes a scattered pile of bricks; with it, the pile of bricks can be a solid, lasting structure. Make sure to write your thesis clearly; it is usually best to make your thesis a declarative sentence. ]
