Essay Writing


When it comes to essay writing, many students get stuck. They may have an idea of what they want to write about but they can’t seem to figure out how to put their thoughts into words. If you’re looking for tips on how to get started with your next essay assignment, consider these four steps:

Before starting your essay, formulate an outline.

Before starting your essay, formulate an outline. An outline will help you stay on track and see where you are going in the essay. It also helps with editing and proofreading because it shows where all of your ideas start and end.

In order for us to understand what we need to write about, we must first have some structure in our mind so that we can organize our thoughts better than just writing down whatever comes into our head at any given moment!

If you don’t get this idea right away then maybe there isn’t enough time allotted for writing such as this course might require before deadlines begin so please keep reading!

After the outline, write a rough draft.

Once you have a rough draft of your essay, it’s time to start editing. You will want to edit for clarity and organization, as well as grammar and spelling errors. This is where many people go wrong when they write essays; they don’t take the time to do this properly. When you’re working on a paper or report, there is no room for mistakes!

After editing off all of the typos and grammar mistakes in your rough draft, it’s time for another step: proofreading. Proofreading means looking at what was written by reading over it again carefully so that everything makes sense before submitting it back into our system (e-mail). If there are any issues with what we write then we can correct them before sending out final versions which could lead us into problems later on down road if not caught early enough during these steps where people tend not want anything changed about their own original work unless due cause exists such as plagiarism accusations coming up against someone else who may not even know themselves how much effort goes behind every single word typed onto paper each day while sitting at computer screen typing away at speed so fast even teacher couldn’t catch up with her own thoughts which might mean hours wasted trying figure out why certain sections seem off kilter instead leaving blank spaces between sentences making sense only after reading through whole document again looking closely at every sentence individually rather than just scanning entire thing line-by-line without paying attention first signifying lackadaisical attitude towards creating proper final product

Write the introduction of your essay.

The introduction of your essay should include a thesis statement and a general summary of the topic, argument and research.

The thesis statement is simply a brief explanation of what you are going to write about in your paper. It’s like saying “I’m going to talk about how XYZ.”

The general summary includes summarizing information from both sides of an issue or debate—for example: “In this paper I will argue that XYZ.” It also helps people who don’t read very much know exactly what they are getting into before starting reading anything else (in case they skimmed over it).

In the conclusion, sum up your argument and reiterate why it should matter to your readers.

At the end of your essay, summarize what you have said. This can be done in one sentence or two sentences but should include a clear statement about why it matters to your readers and how they would benefit from reading the essay. For example:

“In this essay I will argue that [your thesis] because we live in a society where there is so much violence and crime. This makes our lives more difficult than they should be because it affects our health, safety and happiness every day.”

Include a thesis in your introduction.

The thesis is the single most important sentence in your essay, and it should be a clear, concise statement of your argument. It can also be called “the topic sentence.” You should always include a thesis in your introduction because it sets up for potential readers what they’re going to learn from reading further and helps them understand what their purpose is as they read on.

Thesis: A claim that you want to prove; this may or may not be debatable!

Edit and revise your work after writing the rough draft.

After you’ve finished the rough draft, it’s time to edit and revise. Don’t be afraid to change your ideas as you go through this process; sometimes you’ll find that a new idea or approach is more appropriate than the one you started with. It’s also important not to worry about formatting or grammar at this point—the content of your essay is what matters most!

You should focus on making sure that your thesis is clear and supported by evidence; make sure that each paragraph has an argument, as well as supporting evidence in support of those arguments (if applicable). Your thesis may change throughout the course of writing; if so, make sure all relevant changes are reflected in any revisions made after drafting. Finally, ensure that all relevant sources cited throughout this document can be found online somewhere easily accessible (eBooks should come with URLs).

Proofread your essay.

Now that you’ve finished writing your essay, it’s time to proofread it. This will ensure that the whole piece is consistent and coherent, as well as effective in its use of language.

  • Check for spelling and grammar errors. These are two major things that can turn off a reader or student who has to read an essay later on. If there are any errors in either one or both areas, fix them right away before moving on to other sections of the paper (which often means going back through multiple drafts).
  • Check for formatting consistency throughout all parts of the document—this includes font size/typeface choice; line spacing between paragraphs; capitalization used throughout content-wise; etcetera—so readers know what they’re reading at each point along their journey through text hereon out!

The intro is like the headline of a newspaper article — it needs to draw you readers in without giving away too much information.

The intro is like the headline of a newspaper article — it needs to draw you readers in without giving away too much information. It should be a concise summary of your thesis, with enough detail to interest potential readers but not so much that they get bored or distracted.

The best way to write an effective opening paragraph is by asking yourself these three questions:

  • What do I want my reader to know?
  • How will they know this?
  • Why should they care about what I’m saying?

You should also review related literature to see what others have written about your topic.

You should also review related literature to see what others have written about your cause and effect topics.

You can find this information by doing an online search, or by going through the library catalogue and looking up relevant books or articles.

Once you’ve found some material that relates to your essay, you should use it as support for your argument.

With careful planning, you will be able to complete a good essay

The first step in writing a good essay is to plan it. If you have no idea of what you want to say or how you should say it, then this process will be very difficult for you. And if the outline is not clear enough, then it will also be difficult for anyone else who reads your essay so they can understand what exactly makes the topic special, why they should care about such an issue and why all these issues are important at all.

But if there is some kind of plan ahead of time (and let us be honest: most people do), then everything becomes much clearer: what do we want our readers’ attention drawn towards? What kind of argumentation do we need? Who should participate in this debate? How do we want them convinced by our arguments? What type of evidence can convince them best; which arguments would work better than others etc., etc..


You may be thinking, “I don’t know how I will ever write an essay.” Don’t worry! We have all been there. But now that you have a plan for what to do, it will become easier and faster to complete your project. We strongly recommend you keep track of your progress so that when things get tough or slow down, they can be easily identified as part of the process rather than something insurmountable. Remember, this is a marathon not a sprint; take these steps one at a time and build up your confidence along the way!
