Essay writing is a skill that needs to be constantly developed and not a talent that can be showcased anytime the bearer wants it. Aside from thoughts that need to be delivered, there are several requirements involved in writing effective essays. The essay must contain the appropriate formal tone and diction and it must follow the basic structure required.
The essay, like any form of literature, has an introduction, a body and a conclusion. The introduction provides the general idea of what the essay is. It contains the purpose of the essay, the introduction of the topic and its background, the scope of the discussion and the writer’s position regarding the topic. The main thing to remember in writing the introduction is to make sure that the reader knows what exactly to expect from the written output.
The body, on the other hand, contains all the points that support the writer’s position. Paragraphs separate the points in order for the readers to consider each of them independently. It is simpler to read an essay when the points are more organised and linked with smooth transitions.
The conclusion synthesises all the points in the essay into a statement that tells the readers what to do, think, or believe. It can mention other possible areas not included in the scope of discussion that needs further research.
