Essays are the sine-qua-non of academic spadework at any varsity. Almost every bachelor’s or master’s degree comes bundled with a non-negotiable English subject, whose tests inviolably comprise of an essay component. So as a student having fantastic writing skills are paramount! When I first started writing essays, I was mystified, and I didn’t have the foggiest idea, where to begin & where to end. Mapping out how to craft an essay is somewhat perplexing. I intend to alleviate your anxieties by sharing some of the tidbits that helped me write an essay!
(1). Craft a skeleton:
Whenever writing an essay, it’s better to have something to work on, an elementary skeleton upon which you can add intricacies and details as you please. While planning for an essay, going for a crude google search will help you get a better understanding of the topic and help you during your research.
The deeper you dive into the topic, the more content you will have at your disposal. Also, having comprehensive knowledge about the topic, you would be able to differentiate what to keep and what to eliminate based upon their relevancy. Once done, quoting key points on a paper comes in handy while writing an essay.
For me, composing an essay seems to be much smoother if I pre-plot my assertions and structure it all. Doing so will ensure I don’t lose my line of reasoning or end up baffled. I strategize my essay and render my point. Once done, I will relate the branch points to the main crux and highlight them with different colors, which relate to distinct facets of my assertions.
This step takes the least amount of time, which sounds absurd! But once you have strategized your essay and preplanned all the points that you are going to make, your pen just moves like jaggers. It’s crucial while writing an essay to get this critical analysis element. It is not the simplest thing to accomplish but is certainly paramount, but I think it’s easier to include it when you read the reference and gather data as you go. That way, when you start to write the essay, you actually start the process of writing the abstract.
(5). Reference, proofread, and submit:
When the essay is finalized, the rest comes effortlessly. Also, I can’t overstate this sufficiently to mark your in-text referencing as you go! It’s so annoying to go back and add them sentence by sentence. So, do it when you compose, and spare yourself the pain of extra Crocin. Lastly, scan through your essay for any unnoticed errors, then click the submit button.
