Here effectiveness means to use the right sources of reference in terms of argument development and supporting pieces of evidence and efficiency means to write your essay in the minimum possible time so you can prevent yourself from the stress of being late. Here are some key factors and keeping these in your mind while writing essay would help you to improve your writing skills and get your desired grades against the written content;
- Writing Plan or Outline
Mostly it is conveyed to students that an outline or a writing plan is required for lengthy research essays and reports but true is that it would help you in writing even an essay on a single page. You need to make an outline that includes all key ideas of content and elements of essay structure.
- Searching Relevant Information
This is the second most important step but the first most important factor of content development. Here, you need to search the relevant data but not in an excessive amount that might confuse you that which evidences to add in and which to neglect. Search the keywords of the central theme of your essay to identify the key idea of argument and then search the keywords from your arguments to search supporting pieces of evidence.
When you are done with research of related academic or professional material as per requirement of your essay, now you need to read all those articles, books and blogs (that must be authentic or at least with original references). Reading is not just identifying the supporting pieces of evidence or opponent opinions but also to understand the scenario so you would be able to write a claim that you truly think is true or related to your ideas.
Now you are done with the reading of related material so this is the time when you should start writing. First, make a draft containing all key headings required to be added in your essay then write under each heading and put the number of word limit before each heading that you must follow. It will prevent you from exceeding the word limit and as you know it is really difficult or sometimes re-writing process to deal with exceeding words. Written content must be clearly describing your understanding of the topic. Further, ensure an error-free language use in writing so the reader can interpret same meaning from content that you want to deliver.
- Editing and Proofreading
This is the last step of quality essay writing but unfortunately, most of the students do not think or take it as important or essential last step to be done in essay writing. Editing and proofreading ensure the quality of an essay in terms of content and as well as for the formatting and structuring of the essay. You can find and eliminate all errors those can lead your essay towards failure.
