An argument is a collection of sentences (known formally as propositions) intended to convince the reader that something is he case. Perhaps you want to convince people to take some action, to buy some product, to vote a certain way, or to believe a certain thing. The thing that you want to convince them to believe is the conclusion. In order to convince people, you need to offer one or more reasons. Those are the premises. So one type of article consists of premises leading to a conclusion, and that is how you would structure your first paragraph.
When you elect to write an essay or article, then, you are going to write one of these types of writing. If you cannot decide which type, then your purpose is not clear. Think about it, and make the choice, before continuing. Then you will know the major parts of the article - the premises, say, or the parts of the definition. Again, if you dont know these, your purpose is not clear. Know what you want to say (in two or three sentences) before you decide to write.
Begin by writing - in your head, at least - your second paragraph (that would be the one you just read, above). Your second paragraph will tell people what your essay says. Some people write abstracts or executive summaries in order to accomplish this task. But you dont need to do this. You are stating your entire essay or article in one paragraph. If you were writing a news article, you would call this paragraph the lede. A person could read just the one paragraph and know what you had to say.
