    Need help on making essay have more thought instead of examples.

    Hi,
    I recently had a conversation with my teacher and she read my essay. She said it was good, but I would have to put more thought instead of examples from the book. What does she mean by this and can anyone give me any examples of thought in essays.

    Re: Need help on making essay have more thought instead of examples.

    It means you need to come up with original ideas yourself, instead of simply copying facts from a book and rearranging the order.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
