How can you write a simple essay in an easier way?

by Randhir Pandey Team Lead - Marketing

I am a writer by profession. I am pretty used to students who come up to me and say Please “write my essay”. I would have considered their requests if the essay topic was something difficult. But I am really very surprised to see that students today cannot even manage to write an essay on a simple topic.

I asked them if they know what kind of essay they have to write. I was again shocked to hear that they do not have any idea. Due to this, students look for assignment help.

I found several reasons why students look for essay writing services.

ü  Firstly, they do not know the requirements of the paper.

ü  Secondly, they do not have sufficient knowledge on the subject

ü  Thirdly, they do not have the necessary writing skills.

Though I do not consider the third point to be necessary to write a simple essay, however, the essay should be grammatically correct. And this is not all. The essay must reflect a proper choice of words and other terminologies according to the requirement of the subject.

What should you do in a circumstance where you need to write an essay? I would suggest you to try and write the essay by yourself. If you fail, try again. At least, you will learn the subject in the process of trial and error.

Now, to focus on the ways to write an essay, I will tell you what you can do.

Before you start the essay, you need to understand the topic. Read it numerous times and understand what it wants. Start researching it. You will get various slants that you can take to write an essay.

Use research tools like Taoist, Reworks, Zoster, etc. to find information. If you have time, visit the library of your academic institute. You will find several books which provide information that are not available online.

Refer these pieces of information as data in your essay. Now, that you have got a slant or idea, start mind-mapping it. There are several tools to assist you with mind-mapping like Cagle, Poppet, and SpiderScribe where you can jot your thoughts and connect them.

Conduct a thorough research on the slant. Find necessary information, data, and illustrations (if required). Do not forget to make a note of the sources of information as you have to mention them in the referencing section.

There is no necessity to use complex words to write your essay. Keep it simple. Otherwise, you might end up making grammatical errors. You will find software on the Internet that you can use to type your essay.

Use tools like Read Cube, Paper pile, Blind write, etc. to compose your essay. You can also use MS Word for this purpose. In fact, these tools will show you the basic grammatical mistakes that you have made while writing.

Research again, if you find that the information you have collected is not enough. However, do not mention things that are not necessary to meet the given word count. Keep in mind that your examiner will assess the quality of the paper and not the number of words.

Once you are done writing, you can make use of the editing and proofreading tools that are available online. You can use Grammarly, PerfectIt, Hemingway Editor, etc. to edit your writing. These tools will also proofread your essay, remove the mistakes and make it flawless.

Do not forget to make a reference list at the end of the essay. Check the referencing style stated by your university. You must also follow the stated formatting and styling norms too.

Therefore, by using these tools you can easily write a simple essay. Keep practicing, and I believe that with time and practice you can write complicated essays too.
