Everyone can agree that writing an essay can be difficult and challenging if we don’t have much experience, or if we don't know what to write about. Many students fear those assignments and they often struggle when they get a topic that they have to do research on. In order to get a good grade, everything has to be written well. But how to do it?
Don't worry! We will help you! Here are some useful tips on how to write an essay in order to get a masterpiece out of it.
When you get a topic from your professor, try to analyze it and get the most out of the topic. Maybe there are different angles to write about. Talk to the professor if it is not clear to you, and he will probably give you more information on what you can write about. But, if you get to pick your topic yourself, make sure to pick one which is appropriate and unique. Don't just pick the first that pops up because if it is a usual topic, it won't be interesting to read, since there are dozens of essays on this topic. Pick something that requires deep research and information you can't just find on the internet. Be careful with choosing the right one.
An outline is your best friend when writing the paper. You can write down your ideas, from start to finish. You can plan everything to the detail and decide what you want to include. You will maybe have to write more outlines, until you have the one you want to refer to. You can write the name of the topic on the top of the page and than draw some branches around it, in order to know what you want to include in the paper. There are many sections and subsections you can create and write about. Draw and write everything down, and you will be sure that you have something that will help you with writing, and you won't lose the point.
Be careful with this part, since this is the whole point of your essay. Choose a thesis statement which will give the reader an opportunity to get the main idea of the essay, and what is going to be discussed a about. You can divide the thesis into two parts. The first part will state the topic, and the second part the point of your essay. You should find something unique.
You should write the body part in paragraphs which will basically have the same structure, but they will point out different thoughts. You will discuss the topic here and talk about points you have wrote in the outline. Each main idea has to be discussed and you have to explain it with the help of your research. That way you will get quality and precision, which are very important.
The introduction has to attract the reader and get him to continue reading. You can start the first part with a shocking information, statistics, quote, dialogue, or something that will be unique. You have to point out the focus of the essay, so that the reader know what he is about to read.
Write a short conclusion that will sum up everything and give a clear view of what you wanted to say. You can tell your opinion, but make it short and clear. Don't leave space for more questions. It is a conclusion, so finish it there!
