Did you procrastinate a little too long? Are you just having a hard time getting started? Are you no good at writing? Well, we can help you with all of those. Here are some helpful tips on how to write an essay in very little time, with very little effort.
•Determine what your learning strengths and weakness are and work with or around them.
•Be organized with your research. Figure out where to find the most reliable information on the topic you are writing about.
•Before you get started make sure you fully understand the requirements your teacher has given regarding this essay. Knowing this information before you start writing will save you valuable time.
oHow many pages or words does it need to be?
oDoes it need to be in a particular font & size?
•The pre-writing process — This is very effective for people that just can’t seem to get started. Start by writing down facts or particulars about your subject. Once you have a list of things to discuss it will be much easier to research them individually and turn them into an essay format.
•Next you should work on your outline and thesis of the essay. A thesis should be fairly easy to choose, it is based upon your opinion of the topic you are writing about, so what is it? Write it down.
•Now, your outline should follow your thesis. Once you have chosen your view point write down steps and points that you will need to address is order to prove your chosen thesis.
•Now that you know what you want to write about and from what viewpoint, it’s time to write your introduction. Make sure it is easy to understand and interesting. Use well known facts as well as lesser known ones. You need to hook your audience during your introduction.
•Write a strong conclusion. Your conclusion should, in essence, convince all your readers or listeners that your viewpoint on this topic is the correct one to have. Be passionate about your point.
•Don’t forget to edit!! Walk away, take a 30 min break and when you come back read it out loud to yourself and see where the mistakes are at. You will probably even think of other things to add to the essay. The worst thing you could do is turn in an essay with spelling and grammatical errors.
