how to start an essay?

QUESTION
how to start an essay?
i had to read the perks of being a wallflower and write an essay of my favorite character. My favorite is charlie but i just am having trouble starting the essay…. any suggestions?

ANSWER
What the person wrote above is correct. Here’s a little more input for you:

I’m assuming you’re writing a five-paragraph essay. If so, do the introduction last.

Do the three body paragraphs first, with each focusing on a different reason that Charlie is your favorite character.

Be careful with the word “favorite.” Unless you’ve been instructed that it MUST appear in your essay, don’t use it at all.

The introduction and the conclusion are important, but they are general in scope. In other words, save the important events and ideas for the body of the essay.
