. . Start an essay with a quote? . . I am currently still trying to fathom my way through a 2500 word essay on reality tv. I have found this quote: ''In the future everybody will be world famous for fifteen minutes" which I thought would be quite good to start the essay as that was said in 1968 - which is poignant to the 21st century in regards to reality tv!
Just wondering - has anyone else ever started an essay like this before?? . .I never have so taking a gamble as it's my very last uni essay EVER . .so it kinda needs to be a good piece considering it's worth 75% of my overall grade for the module!! . .
go for it, long as it sounds good, and you can back it up
The opening paragraph is important like in a song or a musical piece. It has to catch the interest of the audience. In an essay, the opening paragraph has the same effect. In an essay the opening paragraph deals with the Q ‘say what you want to say’
as a lecturer off mine puts it
