Choose a topic and draft for essay
In this step, you’re probably given a topic to write about, this is mostly the case. If you’re given a topic, you won’t have to do any research to find a topic but you will have to do some research on the topic itself. You should research what kind of paper you want to write about. Make arguments for your body and then think of support sentences. You will have to do a lot of thinking before getting into writing. See if the essay is a persuasive essay or an informative one.
However, if you have the freedom to choose your own essay topic, go for something you have an interest in. Do the research accordingly to your topic and always check if the essay you’re asked for is informative or persuasive. Choose a topic you are passionate about. As long as you have an interest in that topic, you’re good to go.
Once you’re done choosing a topic, no you will have to draft the essay in your mind. Think about the main ideas you will mention in the body and also think about what your support sentences are going to be. Form them in your mind and start with your essay.
Introduction of essay

It should attract the reader’s attention and should showcase what you’re trying to write about meaning that the reader should know about the topic by reading the introduction.
The body of your essays should consist of 4 paragraphs, it describes your topic. Every main idea you mention should have its own paragraphs. Start by giving a brief introduction about your main idea then support it with the sentences you formed when creating a draft and then give detailed examples for your support sentence. Try to link your main ideas, it will help people link and understand the ideas better. And never try to fake your body section, your teachers aren’t dumb, you will get and your teachers will probably fail you. So, be smart and use legit information and shocking information with which you think you’ll impress your teachers.
The conclusion is very important, it brings closure to your essay. It links and sums up all your arguments you wrote by giving a few final words to your topic. It should at least consist of five to 6 lines with strong sentences supporting the main ideas you wrote.
This part is very important; it determines whether your essay consists of silly mistakes. Once you’ve written the whole thing, proofread it, it will help you identify any mistakes you’ve made in your essay. Always proofread before submitting your essay.
