Once you get those quotes in place, complete the paragraph plan by filling out your main idea (also known as topic sentence) and then, your analysis. Once you have your body paragraphs in place (2-3), examine those paragraphs. Use those paragraphs to craft your thesis and introduction. Once the introduction and body paragraphs are in place, move on to writing your conclusion. At that point, you are reading to proofread and to ensure that your MLA citations are in place.
