Here's a start.

  • Every essay should have a beginning, a middle, and an end.

    As someone once said, you should say what you are going to say, say it, then say what you said. In other words, (1) give a brief outline of your essay; (2) state your case (make your argument or explanation); and (3) sum up what has been said. Those are good guidelines, I think, for a general outline of an essay.

    Generally it is better to use active voice, as it is punchier, but there is nothing wrong with using passive voice once in a while.

Of course, your essay needs to have a theme. It has to be about something. Do you have a theme for your essay?

  • Say: "What's up?"
    Say: "I don't do well at writing essays."
