Give the reader background information, contextualising your research d. Clearly outline the focus/aim of your research- the position you are taking and why, what is the issue at hand, how it links to the background information, and so forth e. Clearly outline why this study/research is valuable and worth conducting- this is very important, think about the WHY of it all f. Outline the objective and intended outcome of your work- clarity, achievability, distinctness and relatability to your area of study

Just start writing, don’t delay this. You can always edit later
