1. Decide on a Topic

It is quite important as an essay writer to have a topic you want to write on. You might as well consider what inspires you most at the point if a topic isn’t suggested at all. If subject topics are suggested, just think of the one you can easily write without stress. Or choose a topic you can easily come with contents. Should it be a general overview of the subject or a specific analysis? Narrow your focus if necessary.


2. Present a draft for your essay

This draft includes any information you want to appear in the essay. It may include writing down the essential points you want to talk about. This may help to organize your thoughts and help you with tips on what to write on.

This structure serves as a foundation for your paper. Use either an outline or a diagram to jot down your ideas and organize them. To create a diagram, write your topic in the middle of your page. Draw three to five lines branching off from this topic and write down your main ideas at the ends of these lines. Draw more lines off these main ideas and include any thoughts you may have on these ideas.

If you prefer to create an outline, write your topic at the top of the page. From there, begin to list your main ideas, leaving space under each one. In this space, make sure to list other smaller ideas that relate to each main idea. Doing this will allow you to see connections and will help you to write a more organized essay.


3. Write the introduction.

It’s important in essay writing to explain to the reader what your essay is all about. It is most of the times regarded as Introduction. Your introduction should captivate or draw  the attention of your reader. Begin with an attention grabber such as a story, an experience or something. Just to make your readers glued to your essay.  Use a very shocking information as informations like this attracts your readers.


4. Write the body

The body of your essay argues, explains or describes your topic. Each main idea that you wrote in your diagram or outline will become a separate section within the body of your essay. Each body paragraph will have the same basic structure. Begin by writing one of your main ideas as the introductory sentence.

Next, write each of your supporting ideas in sentence format, but leave three or four lines in between each point to come back and give detailed examples to back up your position. Fill in these spaces with relative information that will help link smaller ideas together.


5. Write your conclusions

The conclusion is like the summary of it all. You have written all you could write in your essay a perfect conclusion would be necessary. I don’t mean you should start repeating points. Simply review your main points and provide reinforcement for your essay as a whole.
