An Incredibly Easy Step-By-Step Guide on How to Write an Essay

Since the advent of the written word, students have shied away from the task of writing an essay! (They used to pray for the teacher to get busy spearing a bear in the olden days!) Writing an essay can be something as easy as building a Lego robot: you just have to follow a few simple steps to create it. Your essay starts with a topic and your “take” on it, and goes on to explain what you are trying to say. It is as simple as that. Follow this systematic guide to write a memorable essay:

  1. Choose a resonating topic: This is the single most important part of your essay writing. Select a topic that is not only interesting for you but one that is bound to get your reader’s attention. Abortion rights andante-smoking rhetoric has been done to death. Find something that is either new, controversial, or has a new angle to an older problem. If you are interested in writing about discrimination, take it from an angle less likely to have occurred to your reader.
  2. An outline diagram or notes: Write down all of the strongest points supporting your thesis. Draw a flow chart or a mind node from these points. Add all the supporting arguments and evidence you can come up with. Once you are done with forming an outline that gives you a working map from point A to point B you are all set to go.
  3. Introduction: the introduction is one of the most difficult things to write. It is the entry point of your essay. Your reader will decide to stay with you or leave you right here. The opening line is the hardest. When writing your introduction paragraph, start with something that grips the reader’s attention so that he or she keeps reading to the end.
  4. Body: The body of your essay contains the (usually) three paragraphs that describe your main point, the supporting arguments, and the evidence for your topic. Repeat the same pattern in all three of your paragraphs and do not forget linking them with your main argument.
  5. Conclusion: This is IT! Your conclusion is where you tie the essay together and deliver the final blow. You have to be your strongest and most convincing here. The conclusion should be memorable so you use a few strategies to make it so. Restate your thesis in a different way, synthesize your argument in a couple of lines, and close with a redirection. A redirection is a call to action, even if it is just a call to “think’.
