Often the initial thesis statement is only a "working thesis." It may be too general and might need to be developed and specified. After you have written the essay, go back to your thesis and make certain that it properly answers the questions "how" and "why." For example, your first thesis statement can be: "I learned a lot when I moved from one city to another." However, after writing the essay your revised thesis statement can be: "When I moved from a rural town to a big city, I faced the challenge of making new friends and learning to be myself."
