- Writing Skill-Part 2: Organizing and Developing a Paragraph-> Complete the Outline
- Blog What’s the difference between a paragraph and an essay?
A paragraph should be centered on one idea only, and is generally much shorter than an essay, which usually consists of several paragraphs. 
In an essay, you could explore many ideas while talking about one general topic. In a paragraph you would write about only one topic, because paragraphs are shorter, and if you change topics, you would start a new paragraph... part of the nature of the concept.
