Those college or high school essays will often pop up in homework assignments, exams, and sometimes in surprise classroom tests. Becoming proficient in writing essays—whether improvised or planned—will put you ahead in your studies and positively affect your final results. Here are some tricks to help you write better essays every time.
Develop your ideas first
Always take a fair amount of time to decide what you want to write. This planning process is an important step in selecting the direction of your essay. Your points must be fully recognized before you can successfully develop them.
Once you’ve decided what to write, develop those key ideas into subjects that can be elaborated on. If you feel like you may forget what to write under each section, make short bullet points under each one to serve as a content map.
Now that you’ve got some decent content in mind, make sure you connect that content in a readable manner. Let every paragraph (including your introduction) lead into its following section so that flow is achieved.
