SOMEONE ASKED 👇
You’ve settled on an idea for an essay to write. What should you do next?
HERE THE ANSWERS 👇
As a professional writer (IT writing), allow me to help you
a) Find the Topic
b) Devise a plan (if you are good at planning, you can become a well paid project manager some day)
The plan should detail what your subtopics will be, what questions you need to ask to get those answers, who you should interview, what sources you need, etc
c) create an outline
d) write the draft
e) have a third party (i.e. not you or the person whom the essay is destined for) edit it from a critical and grammatical point of view
f) Repeat d) and e) until you are happy with the result
Creating a plan and following it precisely will make you very successful at anything you do. The ability to write (an extremely effective communication skill) will be a tremendous asset to you whether it be in an academic or professional setting.
People always ask…why do I have to learn this? How will it help me in life? The answer is……don’t place the emphasis on the subject you. Place the emphasis on the sources and methods of learning, that is what will help you the most.
I like D. Even though you may think you know a lot about the topic play it safe and do the research. You may even surprise yourself and learn something new. Once you make a plan brainstorm on the different areas you want to cover. List them by priority. Start with a statement that supports your topic and continue to support it by providing evidence . End your essay with a statement like “So this is why I believe……” Good Luck!
I’d vote for B and D together, or D if you’re used to writing essays.
Although I confess that I was guilty of A, most of the time that I was in school. Writing comes naturally to me, and I hated trying to create an outline first.Source(s): M.A. in English, big fan of plan A
B) well kind of… the best bet is to rack your own brain on the topic and see what turns out best for possible things to talk about, basically brainstorming
D. sounds the closest to me. get your outline ready, figure out your opening and closing paragraphs, the essay almost writes itself.
go to the library and find all the information you can to research your topic. go to friends and family for advice or help with your thesis.
A – That’s what I do….or…I make the outline as I go along.
I choose “e”
E. place your homework questions in the homework section.
open microsoft word
A – just go!
