How to write an essay?
It is important, when doing our work, to know for sure what order we will apply to it, both in its textual structure, and, before the writing began, the work sequence. In this section we will learn some steps to perform an essay that will serve as a guide.
We already know the definition of the trial, we know its parts, the types of trials that we can perform and how we can obtain the necessary information to develop them. Now, let’s focus a little on the steps to carry out an essay so that we can, in a simple way, develop it without setbacks.
Steps to perform a trial.
Before performing our essay, having already chosen the theme, we must soak in it. Let’s read as much as possible about the subject of our essay and try, by heart, to develop a simple argument that will be the basis of it. It is important that, if in our essay we think to include precise data extracted from reliable sources, we write them down and have them at hand, in the form of reminders or bibliographic records, and there we mark in which part of the argument they will be inserted.
It is recommended that while reading about our topic, before beginning to write, take note, underline, extract excerpts of text that we think may be useful for our argument or simply have a draft ideas that we could include in our essay. The mind sometimes plays tricks and an idea that we have at this time, possibly when we write we slip away, and return in bad time, at the time we deliver the trial and there is no going back.
It is recommended to always have where to aim when you are thinking of developing your ideas, translate them. Until, if it is precise and the weight of the work that we are going to do it deserves it, we can sleep with a notebook and a pen to one side or under the pillow.
The way in which each one elaborates his essay depends on each one, of his times, his ways of thinking, of writing. Some will write a statement, stop half an hour, think how they can, from there, develop a segment of the trial, they will, and again they will stop a certain time. There are others who do not write anything at all until the decisive moment, in which they end up writing the essay in a single sitting from head to toe. Others, more systematic, that will divide the essay into the essential parts of the argument, together with the data that we will use and extract from various sources, and will develop part of the essay, without the need to start the writing at the beginning (forgive the redundancy ).
It is advisable, as well as for the writing of stories, novels, or any kind of narrative, that one, before starting writing, know how to finish what you have in mind start counting. The steps to perform an essay are the same since, like these other modes of narrative, the essay is a literary genre, as we can remember, and accepts a large number of expressive modes within it. So before starting to write reluctantly, by simple responsibility to deliver a job in exchange for a salary or a grade, think about the way we would like to perform our essay and always seek to enjoy doing things. Of course, do not be so innovative in case our teacher is one of those typical teachers of Spanish who do not accept that the “CH” is no longer a letter, but two together; or if our boss growls without any reason at the slightest sign of yawning, laughing, joking, or others. Let’s learn to do things with pleasure and always try to demand a little more, that otherwise we will be trapped in the everyday repetitive, everyday life of this materialistic world.
