Develop the point
Your development will come from the “thinking about ideas” portion of your preparation. If you have taken notes, then this part of your writing should go easily and quickly because you will have in your notes supporting information for your thesis statement and your subpoints. This is a good reason for taking notes when you are educating yourself about your topic. However, you may also have some ideas of your own about this topic, and those are certainly useful if they do not take you off-track. Stay focused and keep your paragraphs and your overall essay focused.
