Essays are required by almost all students, in every field of study and even after you leave school to enter the work environment, you may be required to write one for a job related reason. Despite being so common, many people find that writing an essay is a challenging task and I’ve found this site to be of great use in this situation. There are many ways to approach writing an essay, some more suited to particular applications than others, in the following points, I will outline a basic guideline for the construction of an essay that should be useful to anyone:
The very first paragraph, this single section has the ability to decide the fate of your entire paper. Most people read a short bit of any paper they are considering before deciding to read the whole thing and many will just skim the first paragraph to help them with their decision. For this reason, authors pay very close attention to how they construct their first few words to make sure they will captivate and inspire readers to continue.
After your introduction, the following paragraphs should be geared towards building the plot and filling in information about different aspects of your story. You can go into great detail here, just be careful to remain within the word limit of your paper. Proceed chronologically and be sure that you do not leave too much to be implied.
At this stage you are about ready to wrap up your tale and you must do so with a bang. Your sections before should have been setting up the stage for a significant event or result that should be presented to the reader in an inventive and, if possible, surprising manner. Readers enjoy when a plot takes a turn that they did not foresee.
After you have climaxed you story, you may have left out small bits of information for dramatic effect. You can choose to include them now, in a concise manner if you deem it necessary, or you could leave your readers speculating.
The final paragraph and quite possibly, the final line of your paper should be a statement that declares either the theme of your story, or an understanding that you think your readers should get after reading your piece. Keep it short, to the point and relevant to the information presented in the past sections.
