Question and answer
topic sentences can be either the first or last sentence in a paragraph. What would be the advantages and disadvantages of each placement?
Being the first sentence tells the reader right away what the paragraph is about, but this is disadvantageous because it does not allow one to develop ideas first. [ Being the last sentence allows the writer to use the topic sentence to summarize information, but it does not directly give the reader information about what the topic is immeidately. ]

when should "bad" and "badly" be used and how can you tell
Weegy: Bad or Badly? We use bad (an adjective) with linking verbs such as is, seems, feels, looks, or appears. Example: "I feel bad that I missed the concern." We use the adverb badly with action verbs. [ Example: "He smells badly." This sentence means he can't detect the smell of his girlfriend's perfume, but "He smells bad" means he needs to shower and use deodorant. ] (More)

What advice would you give to a developing writer regarding how important “brainstorming” is to the overall quality of an essay?
Weegy: brainstorming can help you to put a new writing task in motion or revive a project that hasn't reached completion. [ Let's take a look at each case: When you've got nothing: You might need a storm to approach when you feel "blank" about the topic, devoid of inspiration, full of anxiety about the topic, or just too tired to craft an orderly outline. In this case, brainstorming stirs up the dust, whips some air into our stilled pools of thought, and gets the breeze of inspiration moving again. When you've got too much: There are times when you have too much chaos in your brain and need to bring in some conscious order. In this case, brainstorming forces the mental chaos and random thoughts to rain out onto the page, giving you some concrete words or schemas that you can then arrange according to their logical relations. ] (More)

[ While the tone of this comment is clearly humorous, it certainly helps to underscore the serious difficulty that writing poses to a wide variety of individuals. Writing can be a truly time-consuming, laborious and unpleasant experience for many people. As such, a large number of intelligent, accomplished and highly competent individuals have serious difficulties with producing a final draft, organization and writer's block. Writing does not come naturally to a great number of people, and they face an uphill challenge when trying to produce written materials." ] (More)
