Extended (Long) Hamburger Paragraph



To write an effective long paragraph, you must begin with a solid five-sentence paragraph. Expanding it into an extended paragraph is a matter of adding details and an example to the sentences you have already written. Details provide a fuller description of what you want to write about.

Then one needs to write a specific example.

A specific place, a specific time, a specific event.
