How to write the perfect essay and have time for a date – As you advance your studies, you are likely to feel overwhelmed by academic requirements. You will be required to evaluate and present your opinion on specific topics from different subject areas, which is demonstrated best by essays.

Writing numerous essays on each subject can be a boring routine, especially when handling several subjects. However, the best way to solve such routine tasks is to plan in advance. Planning is the single most important process to begin with. Ironically, this is the most rushed or neglected step by many students.

The whole idea of planning is to work smarter than working harder. Many students put more hours concentrating in one area only to find that they have not done much. The best way of solving more tasks quickly and produce more, is to break down bigger projects into completable tasks within a specified deadline.

One of the most counter-intuitive, but effective ways of solving routine tasks is to limit the number of the task in your list of priorities. Always choose three of the most important tasks to complete each day, avoid trying to do everything at once. These three tasks should be selected from your to do list and allocate specific time to complete each task without feeling pressured.

The first concern is how to approach the topic, before writing an essay you need to decide the position you will take. Most essay prompts is not about facts, it requires the writer to respond to a question and taking a position whether you agree or disagree. These are some of the considerations you need to keep in mind when planning your essay.

The best way to organize your ideas is to write down what you already know and connect your ideas with new information from your research to come up with comprehensive information from your essay.  You can use an outline to organize your ideas, or create a diagram by writing down your topic in the middle of the page then draw branches of other sub-topics from the main idea. Draw more lines from the main ideas to generate more thoughts from the main idea. The outline and the diagram serve as the foundation for your essay. According to essayzoo.org, creating an outline is an important step before writing an essay.

An outline is more of a map that helps in organizing the main points into paragraphs that make sense. Basically, a good essay should have an introductory paragraph, the main body, and a conclusion depending on which type of essay you want to write. Create an outline with major headings for each section based on different themes you can add notes under these headings to help you once you begin writing. After creating an outline that incorporates everything you want to talk about, you can now start drafting your essay following the outline.

The first paragraph is the introduction; a good introduction needs to grab the readers’ attention. The introduction presents the main ideas to be discussed in the following paragraphs and also justifies the relevance of the topic by presenting a brief background. The body is where you present your argument after gathering all the relevant information and developing an outline. Go through your notes, highlight the most important idea you want to present in your essay.  Choose the key ideas to forms part of the essay body.  Each idea should be presented in a separate paragraph, support your ideas for each point by presenting examples relevant to the discussion.

A good body should explain or describe the subject in a systematic process, at the beginning of each paragraph, each sentence should follow the basic essay structure where the paragraph begins with sentence topic sentence, followed by supportive ideas in the sentence which should be three to four lines. The sentence following sentences should give detailed examples or fact to back up your argument. As far as I know, writers on the essayzoo blog states that a conclusion is the last paragraph that should convince the reader to see the importance of the argument. The conclusion sums up your main ideas at the same time presents the final perspective on the topic.  The conclusion should present convincing statements by reviewing your augment, which justifies the thesis statement.

After completing the draft, remember to review the instruction provided for the essay and check if you have included everything as required.  Ensure that your essay follows all the requirements. Apart from the format, review what you have written to check if the sentences make sense, make sure the sentences flow smoothly using transitional words to connect your ideas. Remember to check for grammar and spelling mistakes that might make your essay look unprofessional.

Generally, a good essay should be well structured with an arguable thesis. It should follow the specific format, provide evidence and also use writing tools that will awaken the reader’s attention. Learning these elements will help you improve your writing. Writing an essay can be an uphill task,  however, solving these routine writing tasks can be possible when you plan in advance and breaking down the task to make them manageable. Proper planning is the main secret of coming up with a perfect essay.
