It discusses how thesis statements, topic sentences, and well-structured paragraphs provide clear direction in writing. Radio commentator Tom Bodett, composition instructor John Lovas, and screenwriter Peter Farrelly (co-creator of the film "There's Something about Mary") explain their methods for organizing text.
