    Red face is it proper?

    I want to write an essay, in which the writing order is matching with the way of logical thinking, that means put the concept at the beginning of the essay, make the analysis, and then get the conclusion at the end. Is it acceptable? Usually, we put the point of view at the beginning of essay.

    Not necessarily- if we need to analyse to get to a point, we can put it at the end- the writing should assist the logic. It's like topic sentences; they don't have to be at the start of the paragraph.
