Students are afraid to write essays. Everything from research, workload and writing the essay takes hours.

We all know that essay writing can be boring. But there are ways you can make essay writing fun.

Don’t believe me?

Here are some tips you can use to write an effective essay.

Pick Your Topic

Many times, you are assigned with a topic. If you already have the topic, then you need to decide whether you want to write a general essay on the topic or focus on a specific part.

If you have to select your own topic, you have to do a little extra work. With this, you have the freedom to write on something that interests you.

Write down a few interesting topics and decide on the one you want to write about.

Create An Outline

The second thing you need to do is to prepare an outline. Write your topic, draw branches and write the key ideas that you want to discuss in the essay. You can draw more branches from the key idea and write your thoughts. Another way is to write your topic and your key ideas as bullet points.

The idea is to create a diagram that will organize your thoughts and ideas.

Write The Body First

The body of your essay is the part where you will discuss your main points. So, always write this portion at the beginning. The main ideas that you outlined will be your body. If your body comprises multiple paragraphs, then make sure that each of them follows the same structure and writing style.

Then Your Introduction And Conclusion

After you have written the body of your essay, move up and write your introduction. Keep in mind that your reader will read the introduction first. So, make this attention grabbing and engaging. Write your introduction in a way that it links with the body.

Then finally write your conclusion. Just summarize what you have written in the introduction and body of your essay. Don’t make your conclusion very long – just 3 to 5 sentences will be enough.

Edit Your Essay

Just writing the essay will not be enough. You need to review your essay as well. Go through all your sentences from top to bottom, multiple times if needed. Check if there are any grammatical errors and spelling mistakes. Also, check if the writing style and structure is consistent throughout your essay.

Reread your paper a few times before submitting it.


So, are you excited to try these 5 tips the next time you write an essay? I am sure it will be helpful to improve your writing style.

Happy Writing!
