How do I write an essay

How do I write an essay?

Hi there!
There are different types of essays.
If you are writing an academic essay, there are numerous things to pay attention to as well as follow a prescribed format.
However, since it isn’t specified here, I will discuss a general essay.
Writing a near perfect essay (for there’s always room for improvement) involves paying attention to the following:
This in essence is all you need to keep in mind while writing an essay.
I must stress on the importance of reading.
This helps overall improvement of language including writing ability.
Hope this helps you.
I am here for any other doubt you have.
Good Luck!

Good essays are well planned.
So make a plan on paper before you begin to write the essay.
If you don't finish the essay, include your plan in what you turn in.
You may get part marks.
Good essays have a thesis (a provable claim) that is supported by facts, argued through the use of good paragraphs.
If you don't know what a good thesis is, you need to learn right away.
If you don't what makes good evidence in an argument, you need to learn right away.
Good essays are built on good paragraphs.
If you don't know how to write good paragraphs, you need to learn right away.
All the paragraphs in your essay should be connected to each other by transitional words and phrases.
If you don't know what transitional words and phrases are, look them up and learn 10 before your exam.
Good paragraphs are built upon good sentences.
If you don’t know what a good sentence is you need to learn write away.
Very your sentence length.
My experience in high school,was that you could loose some marks for bad spelling, but you loose more marks for bad grammar.
You would lose the most marks for bad structure as it makes the arguement incomprehensible.
A short well written essay received better marks then a long, poorly written essay.
Here is the easy outline I learned in high school.
It is about 500 words long.
If the essay is longer than 500 words then you can use more supporting paragraphs (each paragraph is about 90 words long).
Or you can use turn the three supporting paragraphs into support section with each section focussing on a particular kind of evidence.
There are variations (for instance in university history we used to do a literature review in paragraph 2 instead of a counter argument, sometimes our essays were just literature reviews) but they are probably not needed at the high school level.
If you know the topic of the essay before the exam, write your outline and memorize it.
Don't waste your time writing the whole easy and then try to memorize it (it probably won't work and it is waste time).
The outline of the essay (about 500 words long).
Title
Paragraph 1.
introduction
Introduce topic, explain why it is important, state your thesis, outline your argument
Paragraph 2.
Counter argument
Explain the counter argument and why it is wrong.
For instance "Professor XYZ claims that Moby Dick, by Herman Melville, is a romance.
The professor argues blah, blah, blah.
However, Moby Dick is not a romance becuase point A,B, C
Paragraph 3 – Supporting Paragraph 1
Use your best piece of evidence to support your thesis.
Use a transition sentence to link this paragraph to the one before it.
Introduce the paragraph topic in one sentence.
Develop the evidence over 5-7 seven sentences.
Conclude the paragraph in one sentence.
Paragraph 4 – Supporting Paragraph 2
Do the same thing you did for paragraph 3 with your second best piece evidence
Paragraph 5 – Supporting Paragraph 3
Do the same thing you did for paragraph 3 with your third best piece of evidence
Paragraph 6 – Conclusion.
Restate your thesis in one sentence.
Highlight your evidence there to five sentences.
Do not introduce any new facts in this paragraph.
Write your concluding sentence.
During exams I never used direct quotes unless they were part of the exam question.
The exception were English exams if we had the novel with us in class.
In order to write an English exam you have to have read all the literature that was assigned in class.

I have written a LOT of essays.
Many to which have been acknowledged as exceptional for my grade level.
Here are the steps that I use when writing an essay:
1.
) Write down EVERYTHING! Organization in irrelevant in this stage.
Ideas can go by very fast, so just make sure you write it all down.
Never know when an idea comes in handy.
 
2.
) Once you have written EVERYTHING down, find the connections.
Piece together the ideas you are excited to communicate.
What ideas are related to each other.

3.
) Outline of essay.

Now, before I continue to describe the outline I use, please note this important idea: do not let your outline define your essay.
I know people who become so obsessed with their outline and structure that they poorly communicate their message.
Dont let your outline control what you say.
Let your outline help organize your thoughts.
With that in mind, here is my outline that I use:
4.
) Finally, revise the essay.
Understand that there are many revisions and drafts to writing a good essay.
Good things take time :)
This is my method.
Hope this helps!

So,I had this problem always…how to figure out that what you write is liked by all.
You really have to devise your own and new method of writing.
I would like to share some of my ideas

The following list is an excellent place to start, whether you’re jumpstarting your writing career, or whether you’ve been writing for years and need to scrape off some rust.
If you can cross the following habits of successful authors off your checklist, you’ll be a force to reckon with in the literary world!
1.
Write every day.
Treat your writing like a job, even if it isn’t yet.
Writing something every day, even if it’s only a paragraph, keeps your creative pump primed and your inertia at bay.
2.
Complete stories.
Discipline yourself to finish every story you start.
If you quit whenever the going gets tough, or whenever the shine of a new idea beckons, you’ll never finish a story.
No one reads (much less buys) half-finished tales.
3.
Learn the rules.
Thankfully, writing is largely a craft that can be self-taught.
Read voraciously: fiction, books on writing, blogs, workshops, and anything else you can find.
Never stop learning.
4.
Break the rules.
Once you have a solid understanding of the principles of fiction, don’t be afraid to step beyond their confines.
Experiment.
Think outside the box.
Fiction is based on a set of basic tenets because they’ve been proven to work, but art is an evolution.
If it stagnates, it dies.
5.
Create your own inspiration.
Pinpoint what inspires you and surround yourself with stimuli.
Discipline, creativity, and persistence are a cure-all for writer’s block.
Don’t allow writer’s block to become an excuse for giving up.
6.
Don’t slack on the hard stuff.
Not all of writing is fun and games, but if you want to create a polished story, you have to submit to the hard stuff, as well as the fun stuff.
Don’t cut corners on research, outlining, or editing.
The extra work always pays off in the end.
7.
Follow your heart, not the market.
Art is a deeply personal expression.
Write the story your heart has to tell.
Conforming your work to the market, just for the market’s sake, will cheat both yourself and your readers in the long run.
8.
Develop a thick skin.
Criticism of our work can seem like a personal attack.
But criticism—especially when coming from critique partners, agents, and editors—is a vital part of the process.
Accept constructive criticism, learn from it, and use it to make your story better.
9.
Set your stories free.
When the time comes to send your stories into the world, learn to let them go.
Your characters are yours no longer.
They belong to everyone who reads them.
Rejoice that you’re able to share them, say goodbye, and move onto the next story.
10.
Love what you do.
We writers are a blessed bunch.
Don’t ever forget that.
The writing road has its own set of speed bumps—isolation, loneliness, rejection—but the benefits of spinning these webs of color and fantasy are more than just compensation!

“What are some ways to start off an essay?” Your question can have two completely different answers.
If you mean you just found out you have to write an essay and want to know how to start, the answer is read.
After you have done some reading, researching, and thinking, I recommend you “brainstorm.
” By “brainstorming” I mean sitting down with a pencil and a big, blank piece of paper and writing in a disorganized fashion everything you think might have to do with the subject of your essay.
(I know it seems incredibly strange to the digi-destined of the computer age to recommend a paper and pencil!) Once you have all your ideas down on paper in a disorganized fashion, draw a square around all the things that look like big ideas, and circles around the things that look like smaller, sub-ideas of your big ideas.
Then see if you can see the one or two ideas that are your really big ideas that all your other ideas can be related to.
Draw a triangle around that idea (or two).
You now have an outline for for your essay.
(The reason you have to use a pencil and paper instead of a computer is that the computer will force to organize you ideas immediately.
You want to delay organizing your ideas, so that you don’t leave anything out and you don’t jump into an organization that won’t quite work.
)
However, if your question meant “How do you write the introduction to an essay?” then the answer is completely different.
The part of an essay that you write last is “The Introduction.
” The introduction tells the reader what your essay is about, and you don’t know the answer to that question until after you have written it.
My most repeated statement about essay writing to students is “An essay is not a mystery novel.
” The last thing you want in an essay is a surprise ending.
The introduction tells the reader the answer to the basic why and how questions, but most importantly the introduction should tell the reader what they are going to find in this essay.
If your have a very clear question that your essay is attempting to answer that is excellent.
Tell your reader the question.
(And make it a real question, not something impossible to answer or something that everybody already knows or, the worst, a set up for what you think your teacher wants to hear.
) Since you have already written the essay, in the introduction, you should be able to give your best possible answer to the question.
That answer is called your hypothesis.
In your introduction you should also include a listing of the triangles and squares from your brainstorming.
This will tell your reader what to expect in terms of the structure of your essay.
I also like to remind students that the root of the word “essay” is the French word “essayer” meaning “to try.
” Writing an essay means that you are “trying out” an idea.
What is most important is that you learned something in the process.
Maybe you are now more convinced than ever of your hypothesis; or maybe you see some other possibilities that you hadn’t thought of, or maybe you even discovered something else that you would like to know about.
These are your conclusions to the essay.

In my opinion a well-structured essay consists of five paragraphs –
This formulaic structure makes it easier for a student to put forth the ideas in an essay.
The introduction paragraph should consist of a ‘hook’ that arrests the reader’s attention in such a way that they keep reading the essay.
Once the reader’s attention is “hooked” you can move on to the thesis statement which is one-sentence explanation of your take on the given topic.
You can put forward a mini-outline in support of the thesis to give the reader a better understanding of what the essay is trying to say.
The last sentence of the paragraph enables the reader to seamlessly move into the first paragraph of the body.
The intermediate paragraphs in an essay are known as the body paragraphs.
The body consists of the examples that hold up your thesis statement.
For the first body paragraph you should put forward the strongest argument.
The first sentence of this paragraph should comprise of the topic sentence of the paragraph which is directly related to the mini-outline of the introductory paragraph.
After you give the example you need to explain to the reader why this example proves your point in thesis.
The intermediate paragraphs should have a common thread which ties them together.
If you have used “first” in the first body paragraph then use “secondly” in the second and so on.
Transitional phrases allow a reader to move from one section of the paragraph to another.
The conclusion always comes at the end of an essay, representing your last chance to make your case.
It does not have to be too long, only four well-crafted sentences will do.
A good conclusion opens with a concluding transition and a restatement of the thesis.
You would be repeating your thesis four or five times in the essay, so you should use a variety of word choices to not make it boring.
It should briefly touch down the 3 main points from the body paragraphs.
The final sentence in the essay should be a universal statement that indicates that the discussion is over and you have made your point.

This is my method.
Hope this helps!

Any essay looks great if you either start or end with a quote which is related to the topic.
Essays usually have three parts: Introduction, Body and Conclusion.
If you are writing an essay for an examination like GRE or IELTS, make sure that your vocab is strong and never repeat the same words again and again.
Make sure you work on synonyms and paraphrasing.
Most common mistake any person makes in an essay is rewriting the question.
The introduction of an essay has to be short and crisp(not more than 50 words) wherein you have to give an insight of your opinion,glimpse of examples and rephrase the question given to you.
Body of an essay should be around 2 or 3 paragraphs where in you have to write about pros and cons regarding the essay with some examples.
Make sure you’d write relevant examples.
Conclusion has to be just one paragraph and never write important things in it.
Never use any words if you don’t know their meanings because they can change the entire message which you wanted to convey.
Try to write a balanced opinion in any essay rather than taking just one side without discussing about the other side.
This pattern can be followed in any exam but it is best suited for IELTS and GRE.
I hope this is helpful to you in some way :)

A2A :)
I will assume that you fully understand the essay question.
In order to write a good essay, you need to do good research.

Good research means going beyond the literature that you discussed in class, and that which you are assigned as compulsory reading.
The easiest way to achieve this is to also read the literature recommended as “further reading”.
Professors usually give you a list containing these readings.
If they don’t, you can go ahead and ask them yourself for some recommendations on what else you could read on the topic.
Trust me, they’ll be delighted to help.
By showing a deep interest in topics they chose to teach as a career, you give them a huge compliment.
If you want to go the extra mile and write a great essay… you guessed it, you need to do great research.
Here are the steps for stepping up your research game 😉

Most common mistake any person makes in an essay is rewriting the question.
The introduction of an essay has to be short and crisp(not more than 50 words) wherein you have to give an insight of your opinion,glimpse of examples and rephrase the question given to you.
Body of an essay should be around 2 or 3 paragraphs where in you have to write about pros and cons regarding the essay with some examples.
Make sure you’d write relevant examples.
Conclusion has to be just one paragraph and never write important things in it.
Never use any words if you don’t know their meanings because they can change the entire message which you wanted to convey.
Try to write a balanced opinion in any essay rather than taking just one side without discussing about the other side.
This pattern can be followed in any exam but it is best suited for IELTS and GRE.
I hope this is helpful to you in some way :)

“What are some ways to start off an essay?” Your question can have two completely different answers.
If you mean you just found out you have to write an essay and want to know how to start, the answer is read.
After you have done some reading, researching, and thinking, I recommend you “brainstorm.
” By “brainstorming” I mean sitting down with a pencil and a big, blank piece of paper and writing in a disorganized fashion everything you think might have to do with the subject of your essay.
(I know it seems incredibly strange to the digi-destined of the computer age to recommend a paper and pencil!) Once you have all your ideas down on paper in a disorganized fashion, draw a square around all the things that look like big ideas, and circles around the things that look like smaller, sub-ideas of your big ideas.
Then see if you can see the one or two ideas that are your really big ideas that all your other ideas can be related to.
Draw a triangle around that idea (or two).
You now have an outline for for your essay.
(The reason you have to use a pencil and paper instead of a computer is that the computer will force to organize you ideas immediately.
You want to delay organizing your ideas, so that you don’t leave anything out and you don’t jump into an organization that won’t quite work.
)
However, if your question meant “How do you write the introduction to an essay?” then the answer is completely different.
The part of an essay that you write last is “The Introduction.
” The introduction tells the reader what your essay is about, and you don’t know the answer to that question until after you have written it.
My most repeated statement about essay writing to students is “An essay is not a mystery novel.
” The last thing you want in an essay is a surprise ending.
The introduction tells the reader the answer to the basic why and how questions, but most importantly the introduction should tell the reader what they are going to find in this essay.
If your have a very clear question that your essay is attempting to answer that is excellent.
Tell your reader the question.
(And make it a real question, not something impossible to answer or something that everybody already knows or, the worst, a set up for what you think your teacher wants to hear.
) Since you have already written the essay, in the introduction, you should be able to give your best possible answer to the question.
That answer is called your hypothesis.
In your introduction you should also include a listing of the triangles and squares from your brainstorming.
This will tell your reader what to expect in terms of the structure of your essay.
I also like to remind students that the root of the word “essay” is the French word “essayer” meaning “to try.
” Writing an essay means that you are “trying out” an idea.
What is most important is that you learned something in the process.
Maybe you are now more convinced than ever of your hypothesis; or maybe you see some other possibilities that you hadn’t thought of, or maybe you even discovered something else that you would like to know about.
These are your conclusions to the essay.

A2A :)
I will assume that you fully understand the essay question.
In order to write a good essay, you need to do good research.

Good research means going beyond the literature that you discussed in class, and that which you are assigned as compulsory reading.
The easiest way to achieve this is to also read the literature recommended as “further reading”.
Professors usually give you a list containing these readings.
If they don’t, you can go ahead and ask them yourself for some recommendations on what else you could read on the topic.
Trust me, they’ll be delighted to help.
By showing a deep interest in topics they chose to teach as a career, you give them a huge compliment.
If you want to go the extra mile and write a great essay… you guessed it, you need to do great research.
Here are the steps for stepping up your research game 😉
1.
Have a list ready with both the compulsory and further/recommended readings for the essay.

Any essay looks great if you either start or end with a quote which is related to the topic.
