Writing an essay is a most common task for students. Is it easy to write? For someones, perhaps it is but not always. No matter if it is a scholarship essay or a homework, or an application, everyone can find this writing overwhelming. Here go the steps that should be followed to write a brilliant essay.

1. Your topic.

The first step is the most important. Some teachers give the topic for you, but if they did not, we have to figure some. How to do this? It is easy: take your subject and find the most suitable theme for you. Do you have any thoughts about it? If you know at least something about this, then go on. We can handle this!

2. An outline.

The next step is to write an outline. You have to organize your thoughts first. So take your time and briefly write just a line about each point that you know about your topic. Then you should combine them to make the number of lines be the same to the number of paragraphs you want. No thoughts? Then steal it from the Internet, we need the bullet points only!

3. A thesis statement.

Now comes your thesis statement. You need to summarize your view of the essay in one short sentence. Extract the main idea to the reader like you do it for your Instagram. Let's try with #interview #president #speech #Oval_cabinet #conflict #resolution #crisis.

Did you get it? So you can write something like: “A new interview was given by the President of the US in Oval Cabinet regarding the conflict in North Korea and the ways to resolve the crisis.”

Seems easier right?

4. The body of your essay.

Now you have to write the body. You can follow the outline you did. If it is plagiarized from the Internet, you can simply paraphrase the first sentence and follow the main idea of your topic. You should have one point in your outline for each paragraph.

5. The introduction.

Now you have a thesis statement and the body of your essay. Grab your thesis and imagine that you are a journalist. Make a sensation of this! Describe the problem with a very sharp angle and the reader will have to read more and more. That is the hook you need.

6. The conclusion.

Now we have to close the topic. You should take a deep breath and conclude your idea of the body paragraphs. Attention! Follow the thesis statement written; it should be appropriate.

7. Proofread and edit.

Now you are not a journalist but an editor. Imagine that it was done by your competitor and smash it down! You should criticize everything as it will be done by your instructor. Fix grammar and spelling issues and make sure that it flows easily.

Put your paragraphs in order. The first one and the last ones should be very strong and related to the topic and thesis statement. Insert your own opinion to make it more personal. Once your inside editor cannot find anything to fix, just read it again and submit it to your professor. Congrats! You have just done a perfect essay.
