Organization of Paragraphs

 
Organization of Writing
 
Writers organize information in several ways.  Let's begin with the broad or general approach.
 
Scenarios
"Ladies and gentlemen of the jury.  While the Johnson family was on vacation, Mr. Glogster was seen on the Johnson property several days in a row at dusk.  Witnesses saw him carrying a heavy bag from the Johnson's garage.  Police also found his fingerprints on the door knob and a footprint of his shoe.  For these reasons, Mr. Glogster should be considered a prime suspect in the burglary of the Johnson home.
