Opening sentence that is witty, sets the tone, or is outlandish. This first paragraph should get the reader's attention and make them want to read more.
Second paragraph. This one explains about the topic at hand. In most cases this will tell a story, give some background, or provide some research. A wild and wacky childhood story is always useful to make a point.
Third paragraph. This is the life lesson. The what I learned. The what this means to me. The how this should make you feel. Or a shared moment of awe, laughter or a call to action.
Fourth paragraph. Sum it up. Bring it all to a conclusion. Tie up the threads. Make it all make sense.
End with a quote, something profound, or just be silly.
