An Awesome Learning Kit That Makes Essay Writing Easy
Not everyone can be a Jane Austen in the making but writing can be made easier with these guidelines:
- Choose a good topic
- Write an outline
- Write the three stages of your paper
- Proofread and edit
Choose a good topic
Choosing a good topic to write about is half the battle. In order for you know that your topic is good it needs to be something that holds your interest and that will grab the attention of others. If you have to write about something you do not like than do not make that apparent to your reader and try to find a way to make the topic interesting to you.
Write an outline
Outlines are a very important writing tool. It may seem like a waste of time but an outline of your paper can guide you to a happier outcome. An outline is the option to sketch out your ideas and show yourself where you are going with your paper.
Write the three stages of your paper
The three stages of your paper are introduction, body and conclusion. The introduction has to be attention grabbing, as it is read first, and if your bore your reader in the first part he or she will not pay attention to the rest of what you have to say. The body of your paper is where you work out your points and subpoints, providing a little background information on things but not too much so as not to distract from the real topic of your paper. The conclusion is where you round up your points and refer back to your introduction, making sure that your ending is satisfying to the reader.
Proofread and edit
Do not just write your paper and then turn it in. Proofreading is very important, whether done by you or by someone else, as it will uncover any spelling mistakes or grammar errors you made while writing your paper. Proofreading often leads to editing so the two go hand-in-hand, like an eternal relationship that has never broken off. If you feel too inexperienced or your paper is sounding too good to be true, find a friend or more yet a non-friend to proofread your work. Criticism can vastly improve your writing, especially if you know a harsh critic who will be exceptionally hard in writing red all over your paper. Knowing your paper will most likely be torn to shreds will be motivation in pushing yourself to write better than even you knew.
