Steps You Should Take to Craft a Brilliant Essay

Submitted by on Wensday, 15 August 20184 Comments

Before you get started with essay writing, you will have to learn more about the preparatory stage for essay writing. In order to compose an A-grade essay on your own topic or as a response to the text offered by the teacher you need to conduct research and in-depth analysis. Have a look at the stages that are involved in the essay writing. If you find them too difficult for you, it is always possible to use the assistance where you can get professional essay advice.

Which Stages Are Involved in the Process of Essay Writing?

  • Carefully read the text proposed for writing the essay.
  • Write down objective keywords by group.
  • Mark the links or opposing objective keywords by arrows. Next to the objective write down the subjective keywords, referring them to the meaning.
  • Find unknown or incomprehensible words and set their meaning. Determine the main idea of the statement (what is it about?).
  • Formulate the problem of the text in the form of a question.
  • Outline the arguments "for" and / or "against" this statement.
  • Think about the literary tricks which can make the language of your essay more interesting, lively (comparisons, analogies, epithets, etc.).
  • Outline your standpoint
  • Formulate the general conclusion of the work and, if necessary, edit it.

Have a closer look at the algorithm for essay writing:

  1. Formulation of the problem of the source text: The examiner must formulate one of the problems of the source text. Answer the following questions: What is told in the text? What questions does the author consider? What problems does the author raise? etc.
  2. Comment on the problem of the original text: This part of the essay sets forth its own position on those issues that were touched upon by the author of the source text. The commentary to the formulated problem is a necessary part of the composition-reasoning, in which the student shows how deeply and fully he/she understood this problem.
  3. Reflect the position of the author of the source text.

The graduate should correctly formulate the author's position on the commented issue, and also name the language means of expressiveness, which help the author express his/her thoughts, evaluate the use of language tools from the point of view of motivation in the context, i.e. explain their role in the text, and give examples of their use in the analyzed text.
