How to Write an Essay the Easy Way

I don’t know about you, but as soon as I hear the word ‘essay’, a feeling of dread washes over me. It takes a lot of planning, research and hours of staring at a blank piece of paper before I’m actually scribbling away. Writing an essay is a giant task, but breaking it down in steps can help. So what is the secret to writing an essay the easy way?

Know your subject!

It may seem obvious, but you need to know what you are writing about! You may have been assigned a specific topic or you a free to write a paper on what you want, either way research is vital. If you have been given a topic, you need to decide upon the type of article you want to write. Are you answering a question, giving an analysis on the subject or giving a general overview? Plan your outcome and research specifically for this. If you are free to choose the topic yourself, it makes sense to pick something that you already know a lot about or something that is close to your heart. Be careful not to ramble on though and get carried away!

Brainstorm your ideas

Now you know what your essay will be based on, it’s time to plan how it will flow. It’s a good idea to create or brainstorm, or spider diagram if you like, and put all your ideas onto paper. Draw lines from each idea to see where they connect and that way you can piece together how each idea will flow onto one another.

Time to begin the writing

Hopefully, by brainstorming your ideas you know the direction your essay is going. Instead of staring at a blank piece of paper, you should have the basics of the essay body in your head. First of all you should write your thesis statement. The thesis statement should clearly indicate to the reader the topic and the point of the essay. Once this is complete, you can go onto the main body. Make sure you refer to your brainstorm. Each of the main ideas will be broken down into separate sections but connected to each supporting idea. The body of the essay should argue, explain and describe your topic. Once the main body is complete, it’s time to write your conclusion. The conclusion should bring closure to the topic and consist of three to five strong sentences that review your main points. Make sure you read back through your work. You may think you have finished but sometimes paragraphs may need moving around and putting in order. Check you have stayed on topic as well and that the body and conclusion match up to the thesis.

If essay or dissertation writing really is not your thing, then there are online websites out there that will offer to do it for a fee like dissertation writing services uk. It is legal providing you only use the essay for research purposes and don’t try and pass it off as your own.

Good luck!
