ABSTRACT
This article presents tips on writing an introduction to a paper. When one is writing the introduction to a paper, one needs to think of their readers as friendly strangers visiting their house for the first time. Rather than plunge directly into the details of the argument, one needs to first welcome them by introducing the general topic and providing some background. Only then can one invite their readers into the living room, where one can impress them with the vast research and rhetorical skills.
