Most people write their first essay as children, in their early teenage. However, some people also encounter essay writing for the first time while filling college application forms. Essays as a part of academic curriculum are initially simple ones with approximately 200 word write-ups. In higher studies, essays become longer and complicated but the way of going about them remains same.
The procedure of essay writing has the following phases:
Decide on a topic or make a suitable heading out of the given topic. You must make sure that the heading is simple, unambiguous and gives relevant idea about the topic.
Brainstorm and jot down series of ideas related to the topic. Develop a framework in which you think would be appropriate to represent the ideas. Select the ideas which are connected or interrelated to each other and try to fit them in your framework. Once the basic structure is ready it becomes easier to fill in the detailing.
The first sentence you use should give them a sneak peek into their interest. This opening sentence acts as a “hook”, and determines whether the reader would be interested in reading the rest of the essay. It is necessary to assume your reader doesn’t knowanything about your topic and then write accordingly. Details should be furnished such as to make a person, who knows nothing related to the field, understand clearly about the topic being discussed. The last line of the introduction should be the thesis statement which furnishes main interest in the essay.
As you proceed to each idea, explain on detail your position with reference to the take, why you are taking that position, or why your belief is as such. This part is where you shoulduse as many factsas possible, as evidences to support your idea. Follow the same process for each idea.
An essay contains atleast 3 paragraphs and as the length of the essay increases the number of paragraphs increase as well. At times I long essays, only one idea is accommodated in one paragraphs. However, this may not be the case always. One must make sure that each paragraph has ideas that answer a specific question.
Once the body is complete, proceed to write the ending. It must be made sure that it sums up your stand to the thesis statement. Look back at the draft and go through it. Note the 5 or 10 key problems discussed and solutions to them. Determine the shortest way to connect them together. This is how your ending is developed.
The basic draft of an essay is summed up now. However, there are few things that need to be kept in mind while writing the essay.
