5 Essay Writing Tips
The point of the tips is to speed up the process of outlining and writing an essay. No two people write the same way. So, as you use them and get comfortable with the method, you can change it a little here and a little there to make it work better for you.
Let's get started:1. Outline your essay first. Do this by forming your main thesis statement. Turn the statement into a question, then jot down the first six answers you think of. Three of these will make into your actual essay.
2. Now, list the six answers in order of importance with the most important at the top. Mark out or remove the bottom three answers. They aren't important enough to be included. Or, they need to be combined with one of the top three answers.
3. Take each one of these answers and write for 5-10 minutes, nonstop, about it. Each answer you have is now the basis of at least one body paragraph of your essay. As you write, if you don't know something about your topic, put a blank or asterisk to mark the area that needs research and move on.
