paragraph plan

Plan the structure by making a list of bullet points that will each become a paragraph. These are not binding and you can freely edit them as you go, inserting new ideas into the plan. The main point of bullet pointing is to avoid ploughing into verbose waffling, don't worry ladies, there's plenty of time to practice that skill at other times.

Example Assignment

paragraph 1

Snooker is a cue game for two players, which is played indoors on a large table. It is a cue game like billiards and pool. Snooker tables are more/-er ✖ much bigger than pool tables.

paragraph 2

Snooker is playing ✖ VF played) with a long wooden stick, called a cue and twenty-two balls on (ins?=a) large felt-covered table. There is a white cue ball (ins?=which) is so called because it is the only ball that is allowed to be struck with the cue.

paragraph 3

There are 21 other balls on the table which players try to knock into one of six holes in the corners and on either side of the table. These holes are referred SPELL = referred to as pockets and when you manage to knock the white ball into another ball INSERT => so that it goes into one of the holes, we say that we have pocketting VF=pocketted pp) that ball. Aside from the white cue ball there are fifteen red balls and six coloured balls. paradoxically, in snooker, red balls are not considered to be coloured whilst the black ball is.

paragraph 4

The players take turns to visit the table and try to score points by potting some of the balls. When you score points during a single visit to the table we say that you are building a break. The break comes INSERT to an end when you eventually don't pot another ball or you make a foul shot. Occasionally in professional tournaments a player clears the whole table in a single break. This was first achieved by DEFINITE the Canadian, Cliff Thorburn, Each time a player visits the table to start a new break, he must first play for a red ball and either attempt to pot it, INSERT or to leave the cue ball in a safe position.

paragraph 5

If he is successful in potting a red ball then he must choose a coloured ball as the next target ball. Red balls score one point and when they are potted they stay in the pocket INSERT = until the end of the game. Each game is called a frame and a match may consist of a series of frames. Each ball has a different point value: red=1, yellow=2, green=3, brown=4, blue=5, pink=6, and black=7.

paragraph 6

A break continues by potting red and then coloured balls alternately into the table pockets. When a coloured ball is pocketed and there are still red balls remained VERB FORM = remaining on the table, the umpire will re-spot that coloured ball. That is, he will place it back on it's nominated starting position. The two players continue to take turns until the game ends.

paragraph 7

When all the red balls have been potted the players have to pot the coloured balls in ascending point order. That would be, yellow, green, brown, blue, pink and finally black. Since at this stage there are no more reds on the table, the coloured balls are no long WORD FORM = longer put back in their original position.

paragraph 8

The snooker game ends when either one of the players resigns the frame rather than commencing his next break, or all the balls have been pocketed, including the final black. The winner is the player who has scored the highest number of points.
