Essay writing demands inspiration
Essay writing skills can be vastly enhanced by regular practice. But practice not only makes perfect, it makes permanent so it is necessary to follow the right steps each time and form good habits. Here are some steps you should consistently take to write better essays.
If you are allowed to decide on your topic, brainstorm some ideas with current events in mind and see what you come up with. You may see an obvious first choice or a couple of topics may seem promising.
Look for information that can support the topic you are most likely going to choose. The topic that you can most thoroughly research in the time you have left should be the one you choose.
Given the topic and the information you are going to include in the essay, you should be able to create a basic outline. This will show where each point will go in relation to the others and the contents of each paragraph.
Your introduction lets the reader know what your essay intends to achieve. Once you understand the topic well enough you should have no trouble introducing it. Make sure that your thesis statement adequately covers the focus of the essay.
The body of the essay would have been dealt with in summary form when you created the outline. At this stage you would write it out in full to include all relevant supporting evidence. If any points seem significantly weaker at this stage, consider omitting them.
The only element missing form the essay at this point would be your conclusion. This gives you a chance to wrap up any loose ends and reinforce the major points of the essay. Take care not to accidentally introduce any new points at this stage. If a point needs to be made, confine it to the essay’s body.
Your complete essay needs to be thoroughly checked over at this stage. There may be grammatical errors or unfortunate style choices that reduce the overall efficacy of your writing. You can either do this part on your own or ask for assistance form someone who is experienced in it.
By practicing these steps over and over you can develop a habit of competent essay writing.
