    How do you write your essays? I combine my intro and thesis in one paragraph, a few body paragraphs and a conclusion

    This thread was not made to mock.

    Split infinitives are fine.

    I write my essays with a standalone introduction because that is how I have been taught by my English teachers.

    Hmmm. What about comma splices? I don't see those here too often, but they do make me mad.
