Let's face it; writing essays is part and parcel of high school and college. If you're just a beginner when it comes to writing essays, there is no better starting point than talking about entire writing process in details.
The first thing you will need to do when composing an essay outline is to know what you are going to talk about. Having a goal or topic for the paper is key important for producing a successful outline and finished product. Picking your topic will have a lot to do with what type of paper you planned on writing, for instance; persuasive, an expository, analytic and argumentative essay.
These tips and examples above may seem to be out of order, but the thought theory will fall into place. Watch this! Once you have the topic/ thesis paragraph content, main supporting paragraph outline material and then ending results you then, have your outline.
Something that is important to know and understand with all college papers and mostly high school papers is, your teacher/ professor will give you a specific word count that your paper has to be. The easiest way to take control of that would be to take a look at your finished outline, see how many paragraphs you will end up with.
The above outline shows us we should have no less than six paragraphs. 1- Explaining your topic, 4- separate supporting paragraphs, and then 1-conclusion paragraph. So say you were assigned a 2000 word essay, then the easiest way to execute that would be to divide the required word count into how many paragraphs you should have. 2000/6=333.33, so on the save side you would say each paragraph should be at least 334 words. That helps break up the thought of writing a 2000 word essay. Instead, you just have to write six short paragraphs that flow well with one another.
If you practice these tips and examples, you can become a successful, exciting writer by flowing through all assignments the same way. And hopefully not hitting a writer block mid paper.
For every successful student it's not a secret that planning your assignments will save you a lot of time. So never omit this part of writing.
