hi, I am writing an essay in which needs to be 2000 words. My introduction is on the longer side and is the length of two paragraphs. I was just wanted the opinion of an English professional or teacher as I was wondering if it is a good idea to divide this lengthy intro I have written into two paragraphs. Like is it okay for a 2000 word essay to have a introduction that is a little longer than one page??? and if so is it okay to divide it into two paragraphs. Also, I thought it would be good to mention to you that I have tried shortening it, only that I can only shorten it so much because than I will start taking out important points within it. Part of the reason why it is on the longer side is because my essay topic is a complex one that expects me to cover allot of aspects within it and also my prof wants me to prove my argument win many ways so I have multiple points that I need to cover in my essay and therefore thats why my intro is kinda long.
