Also remember to use an attention grabber: pull your audience in with something to think about that is related to real life about your topic but that isn't a yes or no question--this is also excellent then to open the door for a great conclusion that is a powerful statement to leave audience with a nugget to think about--which makes your writing very full circle which is an excellent writing trait. :)

Decent attention grabber: Have you ever visited another state?

Better: If you could travel to another state, which state would you travel to?

Then conclusion could involve: What is keeping you from moving to/traveling to the state you like? What does __________state offer that the current state of KY doesn't?

 

Proofreading is another key; let it rest then give fresh eyes to it...and look at it through a reader's perspective. Ask question* are my transitions clear, are my key points clear and do they support my thesis, did I use support to back up opinions, did I lead audience in beginning and did I leave them with a thought to ponder in the end?
