Writing a perfect essay is not as difficult as you think it is, if you keep certain basics in mind:
- The length
Unless otherwise specified, a five paragraph essay works best if you want to write the perfect essay. Keep your sentences to the point and short. Do not ramble on by repeating words or phrases.
- The topic
Even a well researched essay can get boring to read if the subject is dry or mundane. On the other hand choosing a topic you love and are knowledgeable as well as passionate about will help you to write in a likewise fashion.
- The main points
What are the main things you would like to say about a particular topic? Try to zero in on three important points that you can elaborate on per paragraph. Also ensure that there is a logical explanation of points so that the essay flows from one point to the next.
- The format
A perfect essay should begin with the introduction, be followed by three paragraphs that elaborate on your thesis statement and end with a strong conclusion.
- Catchy start
Let the introduction make a sweeping and interesting statement about your topic and then narrows this down to your thesis statement
- Create an outline
This will ensure that you have covered all the vital aspects of a topic. A perfect essay should be interesting and informative. It should leave the reader feeling like they have learnt something by sparing the time to read your essay
- Keep it simple
The perfect essay does not ramble on unnecessarily or use difficult words and sentences for the sake of doing so
- Creating the content
Look through the list of references and ensure that you have not omitted to read a required reference. It is always a good idea to read the latest references first as these will refer to older literature on the subject. Make notes as you go along and keep your citations in tact
- Edit! Edit! Edit!
Once you have said all you need to say-you need to read through what you have written to ensure that your essay reads clearly and has a logical flow of points that get wrapped up in a clear and concise conclusion
And there you have all the elements for writing a perfect essay.
