If you can’t write the introduction, skip it and come back to it later. Just write the rest of your essay with all the points that you’re trying to make, and then come back to the introduction at the end.

Introductions and endings are the hardest parts of an essay, because you actually have to think about them, and they’re different every single time. You’ll figure it out, but sometimes it takes a little bit of actual writing to start your mind up. So do the easy part first, and maybe just doing that will help you out.
