... the crappy first draft of what I hope will be a decent article eventually.

Do you have problems writing concluding paragraphs? Of course you do.

Image: This is what a corrected first draft looked like in the typewriter era. If you were a good writer, that is (in this case, James Michener).

    One of my old supervisors had to say to me more than once, "Jon, what you seem to be saying is this: .... Why don't you put a paragraph at the end saying that?" There is a real challenge, though, to wrap up what you've said without either repeating oneself or continuing to develop the idea (and thus not really concluding).
