    is this just a general question, or do you have to write on a particular essay??
    if it is the latter one, then can you post your essay title please and tell us of how many words this must be??
    and also can you tell us if it is a university assignment or a school work??

    It depends on many factors, so you'd have to supply more information.

    An essay can have many purposes, but the basic structure is the same no matter what. You may be writing an essay to argue for a particular point of view or to explain the steps necessary to complete a task.

    Either way, your essay will have the same basic format.

    If you follow a few simple steps, you will find that the essay almost writes itself. You will be responsible only for supplying ideas, which are the important part of the essay writing anyway.

    First impressions
    Your opening paragraph needs to be good to pull the reader in.

    Plan ahead

    An outline of what you want the article to achieve will save you from getting halfway through and running out of things to say.

    Keep it simple

    Don't use five words where you could use two.

    It's good to talk

    Quotations from people in the know peppered throughout your article will give it a real lift.

    Brand new

    Avoid lazy clinches at all costs your own wording holds far more interest.

    Second opinion

    Ask a trusted friend to read your article through; a second pair of eyes might spot things you've missed.

    Faultless performance

    Your spelling, punctuation and grammar needs to be accurate, full stop.

    The whole truth:

    Check and double check that any facts you mention are accurate; 24.56% aren't. Or is that 24.57%?

    The last word

    Finish your article with a confident, definitive sentence. An article that just trails off is unsatisfying...

    Have fun

    Writing should be an enjoyable process, so don't stress!
