Essay Writer and Proofreader All Rolled Into One - Getting Paid For Writing

The first time I taught VALUES in a writing class, I told my students to go home and write down as many strong experiences as they could think of in their lives. Next to each, they were to write out a strong reversal that was closely related to each strongly positive or strongly negative experience and based on further experiences from their lives or from the lives of people they personally knew.
I provided several examples on the white board so they would be sure to understand, and we discussed those a bit. And I explained that the assignment was to help them identify material they could write about in the several types of essays they would be completing throughout the course of the class. They seemed to 'get it.'
However, before the next class period, two unhappy students came to see me. They were having trouble finding values in their lives that they could reverse.
The first student, Jared, stood in front of my desk and said, 'I don't see what you mean by positive and negative values in my life. I guess I've got a stable but boring life,' he laughed.
I laughed, too, and responded, 'Well, how are your experiences, your relationships, at home? What are the values-really positive, really negative? Just so-so, nothing to brag about or complain about?'
'Just so-so, I guess. We get along okay, actually. No real problems. Nothing really wonderful, either, I guess.'
I chuckled and said, 'Okay, I know what you mean. What about your health? How's that? Great shape, bad shape-what?'
Jared offered, 'Well, my health's okay, too, I guess.' He paused. 'There is one thing, though.' He looked down at his feet. 'I've got diabetes, but it's under control. I eat right and take my insulin at the right times. No big deal.'

Essay Writing - 6 Common Types

Students often have essay writing activities in almost all of their subjects. The initial step is usually to decide on what topic to discuss. But the next big decision that essay writers confront is what type of essay to employ. What technique works for the selected topic? What kind of writing style is suitable? What tone is efficient?
In choosing what essay type is appropriate to use, students need to fully understand the difference between each type. Here are the common types of essays that can help students on their paper writing activities:
1. Persuasive or argumentative essay
A persuasive or argumentative essay makes a claim or position regarding a subject for the main purpose of persuasion. It is usually presented with statistics, expert opinions, and well-supported arguments about a claim or controversy. In using an argumentative tone in essay writing, it is essential that the issue to be discussed is two-sided wherein the writer takes a stand. Also, the main argument must be clear, exact, and highly focused.
2. Comparison and Contrast essay
This type of essay writing takes two subjects and identifies their similarities and differences. A good comparison and contrast paper possesses a valid basis for comparison - a limited focus and catchy information. In writing essay using compare and contrast, it is vital that the purpose for comparing and contrasting the two subjects is made clear. This purpose is crucial because it provides focus to the paper.
3. Descriptive essay
Descriptive essays' aim is to provide a vivid picture of a certain person, place, object, or event. It offers concise details that enable the readers to imagine the subject described. Generally, descriptive essays explain the "what, why, when, where, and how" of a topic.
4. Definition essay
Definition essay writing demands writers to present a meaning of a term that goes beyond the objective definition offered in the dictionary. Essay writers need to provide a more focused and exact description of the term than what is offered in reference sources.
5. Narrative essay
A narrative essay tells a story in a sequence of events. This type of essay is told from a defined point of view, often the author's. It offers specific and often sensory details to get the reader involved in the elements and sequence of the story. Verbs must be vivid and precise.
6. Evaluation essay
The prime purpose of this essay writing style is to form judgment on certain ideas, places, services, etc. basing on clear-cut criteria. An informed opinion is critical to the development of this essay. It is important to use facts, statistics and other authoritative resources to establish and organize the criteria to present a substantial analysis and evaluation.
Essay writing is just one tough kind of various paper writing activities. Students usually ask for professional essay help to assist them on what type of approach or style to use in their composition.

Essay Writing Tips - Powerful Introduction and Conclusion

Essay writing is never complete without the two most essential parts - introduction and conclusion. Why? Introductions serve as teasers that establish and convey the relevance of the whole essay. On the other hand, conclusions serve as deal sealers that leave strong and persuasive impressions on the readers.
With such great responsibility, introductions and conclusions have to be as powerful as possible. These paragraphs give the readers the opening and ending statements required that can make or break an essay. Brilliant essay writing has two vital factors - attractive introduction and strong conclusion.
Writing good introduction and conclusion is not done in a snap. It entails squeezing of creative juices and sufficient time to research. But there are some important considerations that can guide essay writers in coming up with hip beginning and ending statements.
In Writing Introductions
The introduction is basically designed to grab reader's attention. It also aims to provide the readers a brief rundown of the essay's main focus and idea. Remember two main points.
1. Begin with a bang. An attention grabber opening paragraph is a sure hit in essay writing. How to formulate such? A lot of means are efficient. Here are some:
o Use startling information 
Employing surprising and revealing information has always been a good way to start an essay. Essay writing is an exciting and brain stimulating activity. Using startling facts make readers curious and excited. Therefore it compels them to read more. However, the information must be true and confirmable.

The Problem With Writing Paragraphs and Essays

"Writing paragraphs and essays makes me ill," says Wendy, a high school student and newly immigrated citizen to Canada. Writing in English takes some work and Wendy was very anxious about her writing skills. Most students are inadequate in their writing skills to communicate effectively and to make themselves clearly understood. They usually begin with weak paragraph structure and move forward to poorly written essays. Moreover, the amount of practice actually done in class is too little for them to master the basic skills of writing. Wendy's problem is two fold as she has a second language barrier as well as the lack of adequate training in the subject.
At first, the task of overcoming the basic fear of writers block and empty pages may seem too much for some high school students to face. Their intellectual and imagination faculties are usually in very poor condition. Early in their elementary school training when daydreaming was a student's favorite pastime, the notion was scolded out of them with threats of punishment. However, that little faculty happens to be one of the most important gems in the writing process. For example, I was working with a grade five student the other day and asked him to write a simple paragraph about his favorite food. You know, he could not imagine himself eating it and therefore could not describe the feeling. Wow! He had lost his ability to pretend and visualize. Imagination is the most important creative element in writing.
As students continue through elementary school and move on to high school, their imagination skills and writing skills get worse. Why? They have been told to stop daydreaming or face severe punishment. They have been told to face reality and stop fantasizing. They have been so thoroughly disabused of creative imagination and so robotically trained to write about other peoples' works that they often cannot develop their own ideas on given topic. Moreover, they lack the tools necessary to help themselves over this frustrating hurtle.

How to Write Essays Quickly on a Deadline

Essays are supposed to give enough information and featured facts. They're supposed to tell the truth with coherence without deleting a logical and unique form.
If you are commissioned to write an essay and/or article or a story for a publication, you have to be serious at this matter. Editors wouldn't like writers who cannot submit on a deadline. They abhor irresponsible writers who are just for a show and making promises, but not submitting on time.
In the Philippines, I have worked with respectable editors like Melba Bartolome of Women's, Dinah Ventura of Tribune, Nancy Reyes - Lumen of Cook, Reynaldo Duque of Liwayway, Danilo Meneses of Dandelion, Mona Gonzalez, Ricky Lo of Philippine Star, Eugene Asis of Peoples, Leoncio Castillo of Buy and Sell, Dave Frias of Wealthline International, and June Ranera of Rogate Ergo, among others; and I thank them all (forever and ever), for teaching me the guidelines of good writing.
It was not easy. It required a lot of patience to write something the editor will publish conforming to the needs of the paper, magazine, or book.
How to Write the Essays Quickly
The writer needs facts. Primary and secondary data can be used for more details. If necessary, a first-hand interview and witnessing of an event would help. The more details one gets, the better. Moreover, the writer has to be sharp to identify what details to include and what to omit. It is not just getting something to write. There must be some insight and/or added knowledge from the new work.
Write clear sentences. Remember the KISS theory of composition (Keep it simple, stupid.)
Organize data as to theme of the paper or magazine, or audience.
You've got to put your soul and heart into your work.
Be ready to rewrite.
A Stock of Subject Matter
The essay/article writer needs a stock of subject matter. In short, he/she has to be well-read. His/Her senses must be keen and free about the facts of life. Francis Bacon once said, that he took mankind as his field of study; Montaigne and Whitman made use of their lives as the subject of their work. Authenticity and freshness are markers of a good essay.
Theodore Cheney said that an effective essay/article writer needs the skill of the storyteller and the research ability of the reporter.

How To Deal With Essay Writing Rejections

IF YOU want to become an essay writing expert, you must learn how to accept rejections. 
Who says that seeing your teacher grade your essay with "D" is totally a bad thing? It may sound silly, but if you always get negative comments about the essays you write, you are on your way to becoming an essay writing whiz! 
But there are ways to switch this negativity into positive things.

Take a break from your essay writing routines first. If the human body gets exhausted after doing strenuous physical activities, the human mind is not exempted. Writing essays is an arduous task, so it's important to take a break once in a while to "recharge batteries:" Take a walk in the woods, fill your lungs with fresh air, binge with your favorite food, talk to your family or friends, and so on.
Ask yourself some questions. Your teacher is just grading all outputs of the essay writing tasks that he or she assigns to you. So do not blame him or her if your recently-submitted essay didn't pass his or her standards. Ask yourself, "Did I really do my assignment well?," "What went wrong with my work?," etc.
Improve on the worst. If your essays are always getting rejected or your writing style doesn't make the grade, think of the worst thing that would happen: You'll get lower grades in school. Try to improve on the worst by listing possible solutions-such as "I will read a lot," "I will strive harder," "I will seek the help of an essay writing service," etc.-and then pick out the best possible solution.
Try to laugh at your essay writing mistakes. Remember that nobody's perfect, so admit the hurtful truth that you write crap, but that's only for the meantime. Laughing at your mistakes means that you can bravely recognize one of your weaknesses. But you can also be up for the challenge of doing things better. Humor is a wonderful weapon that any writer can use to his or her benefit.
"Next essay please!" The only way to flee from rejection is to do other things which are of value to you. This may have something to do with improving yourself, such as reading more books, picking up on the styles of other great writers or writing about things that you like.
"Trade" your essays. The essay writing preference of your professor is different from the taste of let's say an editor of a daily or glossy. Your essay might be horrible in the eyes of your teacher, but it might be a handsome piece of writing to others. Cliché as it may seem, but there's an opportunity for every difficulty.
Move on! Past is past. If your professor thumped the essays you recently wrote, do not dare to ask him or her why your essay didn't pass his or her standards. "Knowing the truth" behind your recently rejected work will not help.
Above all, believe in the truism that brilliant ideas surface from rejections: Instead of crying over torn-out or thrown-out essay that you previously submitted in school, take rebuffs as a wake-up call, a driving force that will get you going!

He also acts as a moderator of language arts circle club, which teaches the basics of essay writing and fiction appreciation among junior and senior high students. Still single at 35, Markus spend his free time by either traveling to different places or playing football with his co-teachers.

Battling Out Writer's Block

The hardest part in essay writing isn't actually choosing the best topic, but how to start writing. This holds true to students who are having difficulties in coming up with well-crafted essays. Not that you don't have anything in mind to write about. You have a lot of inputs-ideas as well as facts and figures from a wide variety of resources to complement your piece of writing-but the problem is you don't know how to start the ball from rolling. This phenomenon which involves partial loss of skill to begin writing is simply called the writer's block.
Is there any game plan to prevent this enemy from attacking you whenever you have to submit essays to your teachers?
The good news is there are many methods to blocking your way out of the writer's block! Here are some suggestions:
Motivate yourself. This is the basic requirement to keep you from working hard. Set goals why you have to finish an essay, like "I have to finish this so I could watch my favorite TV show later," or "I have to finish this assignment three hours before my dinner date," and so on. You may also place a picture of your movie idol, your school's prom queen or sought-after basketball hunk on your worktable while scribbling anything. The bottom line is to be inspired-it may sound corny, but it really works!
Your initial draft isn't perfect! Admit the fact that your first page will consist of mistakes. Just go with the flow and write, write, write.
Begin with five words. Whether it's for the title of your essay or first paragraph, write five key words then develop sentences using them. Let your hand move so that your brain would function. And do not set limits as to the required number of words because it will change your point of view.
Do some rituals. Take a walk, take deep breaths and stretch your lungs, sweep the floor or get a glass of water. Physical activities will help to pep you up. You may also take a bath first before you start writing, as a clean body and fresh mind give fresh ideas!
Stay away from your computer. If you've been looking at your monitor for half an hour now and you haven't written a single word yet, then it's high time to shut down your PC. Grab a pen and paper and look for a place conducive to writing, like your garden where you could smell the sweet rose, hear the birds chirping, see the lush trees and feel the air. New environment can help you think and write better essays.
Do something "musical." Listen to the CD of your favorite artist while writing an essay. But make sure that it would just serve as a background music or you might end up keeping your writing tools and just have sound-tripping until bedtime

Essay Writing Importance - Breaking Student's Delusion

Essay writing remains to be one of the hardest and complicated tasks that the marvel of modern technology has yet to make easier for man. Everything nowadays is simply keystrokes away, but the process of assembling thoughts into an engaging written piece still proceeds at an old fashioned pace.
Since the days of paper and pencil, essay writing has never really changed a lot. It still entails tons of hard work, in-depth research, logical organization of thoughts, and sophisticated style of writing. As a lot of students continue to hate this writing activity thinking it's just a time-consuming worthless activity, there are four good reasons why writing essays is to be considered as more beneficial than burdensome. Here are some important purposes of essay writing:
* knowledge internalization
* intellectual development
* feedback generation
* good practice
Barely listening to a lecture or simply reading is not an assurance of knowledge internalization. Knowledge has been really internalized if it has been taken by someone as his own. Knowledge possession is best achieved through writing. Essay writing is a good way to internalize the facts that has been heard or read. Eventually, writing activity stimulates the intellect and leads to intellectual development. Aside from that, writing essays is a healthy way to improve writing skills. It is a good practice for future written exams.
Essays are essential for development and evaluation of students' skills - writing and reading skills, analytical and critical thinking skills, research skills, and the ability to write under time pressure. All these skills are assessed in the entire essay writing process.
Therefore, essays are tools to gauge students' level of knowledge and skills that greatly affect their grades and academic performance.
Essay writing remains to be a big challenge to students and even to the most consummate writers. However, essays affect too many things in a student's academic life: grades, reputation, admissions, and abilities. Essays produced by students serve as reflection of their thinking skills.
Students find essay writing to be a burdensome activity. There is a great need to let students understand the importance and benefits that the writing essay brings - that it is intrinsically valuable to their academic growth.
As many students think that the essay writing experience is just a waste of time and simply another great means to add burdens in their academic life, appreciating the skills and knowledge it offers breaks this futile delusion.

Interview Essays That Reveal

Many people use interview essays to reveal the personality of an individual. Interviewers at universities and companies, in particular, use interview essays to check if an applicant has the necessary knowledge and skills to be accepted. An interview essay is also a guide that allows an author - or interviewer - to gather information from an individual who he wants to reveal to his readers. That is why questions formulated for interview essays should focus on the subject's work, opinions, interests and favorite activities.
Just like any form of essay, interview essays must have a goal to be considered professional and to attract readers. An author can accomplish this by formulating questions that lead to a specific aim. When preparing for the interview, an author needs to prepare a variety of questions that answer the four W's - What? Where? When? and Why? He should avoid questions that are too personal. Expressing personal opinions about the interviewee is allowed; however, they must not veer off from the goal of the interview. An author should remember that a good interview essay is not a summary of the answered questions or a personal reflection of the subject, but a clear personality portrait of the interviewee.
Generally, interview essays make use of four different types of questions to help the author better understand the interviewee.
Direct Questions. These are questions that can only be answered by a yes or a no. Interviewees who receive these questions are asked to further explain their answers.
Closed Questions. The correct answers to these questions are limited, making them extremely useful in checking the knowledge of an interviewee on a particular subject.
Loaded Questions. If an author really wants to know the character of an interviewee, he should ask loaded questions. These questions are provocative in nature; presuppositions and guesses that are aimed to compel an interviewee to give a straightforward answer. For example: Do you still like to torture animals?
Non-verbal probes. These represent statements or phrases used by the interviewer to make the whole interview process relaxed and more productive; statements such as, I'd like to know more about your job as a district attorney. Non-verbal probes prompt the interviewee to give more details on a specific question.
Interview essays, like all other forms of essays, has an introduction, a body, and a conclusion in its structure. The introduction contains the general information about the interviewee. It talks about peculiarities such as profession, family life, location, sports or hobbies. The body discusses the topic or the intended goal of the interview. Quotes from the interviewee must be included to show readers that the body's contents are not based on the author's personal opinion. The conclusion is where the author can give his personal reflection on what the interview was able to prove.
With the many different personalities in the world, authors of interview essays will never run out of topics to write about. Authors, however, must check if he has a keen knowledge of the topic and if the topic will interest a lot of readers. A successful interview essay provides an author a complete information about the interviewee and a satisfaction that can only be felt when one has reached his goal.

Top Essay Writing Dilemmas and Solutions

Essay writing is quite a dynamic task. It demands a lot of hard work and persistence to produce a quality composition. Every step in essay writing is crucial that's why essay writers often have a hard time finishing this complex and nerve- racking task.
Most writers encounter dilemmas in every stage of the entire essay writing process - from choosing a topic down to editing. Here are some common hindrances and easy solutions in creating top-rate essays.
Having an irrelevant or boring topic. It is a primary requirement in essay writing that the chosen subject to be discussed is exciting and relevant. Having a good topic to work on keeps the writing process enjoyable. Readers are also easily hooked with unique, thrilling and educating topics.
Solution: Read and observe. Check out for potential topics.
A weak thesis statement. Essays are written for the prime purpose of informing and persuading people. A thesis statement embodies the argument that the essay wants to prove. Having a weak and illogical argument makes the essay immaterial.
Solution: Don't use mere opinions and accepted facts as an argument rather, something that is debatable.
An inefficient opening paragraph. A dull lead paragraph pushes the readers away. Too long starting paragraph also pisses the readers off. An enticing lead grabs the readers' eyes to finish the entire article.
Solution: Use powerful words but not too much superlatives. Make it concise.
Lack of interest or understanding of the topic. A writer can never create a masterpiece without having sufficient knowledge on the topic. It can be very difficult to write about something that is unfamiliar. This leads to haphazardly-written works.
Solution: Choose a topic that excites interest. Do quality research about the topic.
Poorly researched evidence. Having irrelevant evidences or arguments makes reading an essay a waste of time for the readers. Poorly researched evidences prove nothing.
Solution: Look for credible and up-to-date research materials.
Inability to use evidence properly. Evidence doesn't always equate to a quality essay. It depends on how the evidence is used. Inability to use relevant evidence makes the proof useless.
Solution: Select only evidences that suit the argument and write them in a logical manner.
Inconsistent position on a subject. Coherence is the key to an excellent essay. Inconsistency of arguments on the selected topic is quite confusing for the readers.
Solution: Stick to a single point all throughout the essay.
Having a vague and illogical structure. An unorganized structure results to inability of the essay to communicate the ideas clearly to its readers.
Solution: Create an outline to arrange the ideas.
Bad command of grammar and punctuation. Writing is governed by set of rules. Inaccurate grammar and punctuations destroy the credibility of the essay even if it is brilliantly conceptualized.
Solution: Proofread and allow others to edit the draft.
Incorrect reference of sources of information. Inappropriate attribution of the key sources also makes the essay less convincing. Citing the references gives the readers an assurance that the essay is thoroughly researched.
Solution: List all references properly.
Essay writing offers a lot of challenges for the writer. It is a complex yet rewarding task. The only issue is whether or not the writer is up to the challenge.
A literary writer by heart, Anthony do freelance essay writing for a living. He enjoys reading literary pieces and dreams of becoming a Nobel Prize winner in literature. He even took some language courses. Anthony prefers genre that regards existentialism while poetry is his favorite literary form.

Persuasive Essay Ideas

However, what you consider to be good persuasive essay ideas need not necessarily be considered to be good ideas by your readers. Ideas are just one part in the persuasion exercise. The other part is how strongly you feel about persuading your readers to accept your point of view and act on it. If you are sufficiently passionate about persuading your reader the chances are that you will succeed. Therefore for an essay to be effectively persuasive you need to have a persuasive idea that your readers feel sufficiently strong about. Then you should be sufficiently psyched about the idea for you to sway your readers to abcept your arguments.
Persuasive essays and argumentative essays are very similar to each other. The significant difference between the two is that in a persuasive essay the writer not only persuades readers to accept a view point but also attempts to make readers take some specific action. If writers are to do this then the arguments they put forth must be strong, sustainable and sufficiently compelling.
As in the case of other essays writers of persuasive essays must also have a plan with which to work. At the planning stage writers should remember that readers should feel sufficiently strong about the topic in focus, otherwise the whole exercise will be futile. It is quite likely that readers already have some sort of fixed notions about the topic. Writers have the additional task of guessing readers' bias and beliefs, and use this knowledge to wean them away from their biases, counter their objections and finally persuade readers to consider and accept a view point that is different from their own.
Guessing readers emotions about a certain subject should not be the same as guesswork. It should be a studied guess. To do this with any degree of accuracy writers have to research the subject sufficiently, study existing proposals, understand popular mood relating to the topic and assess if all of the objections are surmountable. To overcome objections, writer's persuasive ideas should be sufficiently defensible. The stronger the evidence that writers have in support of their argument, the higher are the chances that they will be able to effectively put across their ideas.
From what has been said persuasive essay ideas that stand a fair chance of doing what they are expected to do, need to pass a few tests. The first test of an effective idea is if the idea is seen as important enough for readers to get involved. If this is not so then you will lose the battle even before it has begun. The next test is that the biases readers have about the subject should not be very strong. Their objections to new ideas should not be insurmountable. And lastly is the idea sufficiently defensible. That is writers should have sufficient evidence to prove their point of view. This evidence can be in the form of expert opinion, personal experience, data and statistics and parallel situations that writers can cite.

Essay Assistance - Can Essay Assistance Mean The Difference Between Success And Failure?

Certainly, it could be a significant factor in the marks awarded for an essay. The longer the essay the more difficult it becomes to maintain its presentation, and the lengthy word count of dissertations, in particular, creates a challenge to adhere to a consistent format and style.
Essay writing help can be sought online, and you should seek out a qualified team of editors and proof-readers who will be able to draw your attention to any perceived deficiencies. Universities allow for such third party dssay assistance within a strict code of conduct which enables the individual student to submit their essays for assessment online.
Essay proof-reading encompasses grammar, sentence structure, spelling and punctuation, and each of these can be corrected using 'track changes'. This allows the writer to retain complete control over their work, and ensures that any decisions over the final version of an essay rest with the individual student. If you are not yet familiar with the 'track changes' facility, this is a tool which retains the original written essay and shows the suggested corrections marked upon it. The essay writer can then review their proof-read essay in a separate, corrected version side by side with the original essay.
Good essay writing is an acquired skill which is not simply a question of fluency. The essay writer should know how to structure an essay correctly and also be able to express their research clearly and succinctly. Using persuasive writing to develop an argument can still be misunderstood if it is not expressed coherently. Without essay assistance it can be difficult to identify any flaws within the academic writing style with which you are most familiar - your own.
Writing an essay assignment is a difficult enough task for anyone, and the help you can gain from essay assistance is a very useful aid. Many brilliant scholars may be specialists in their own field but they lack essay writing skills, and they are not necessarily as adept at putting across their theories as they are at researching them.
There is absolutely no need to sacrifice potential marks to any essay writing weaknesses when the help of essay assistance is at hand. Any student can easily call on the services of qualified editors and proof-readers to transform a good, well-researched essay into an impressive piece of academic writing.
Quality research and a considered argument comprise the substance of any successful example of academic writing, and the context of the essay needs to be framed within the best possible structure. You owe it to yourself to succeed in the best way you can, and essay assistance exists to help you achieve this.

English Essay Writing

A few observations could be made on English essays and English essay writing. The first thing about the essay is that it is a literary work that is indefinable in nature. It is a definitely a type of literature, but it is not exactly possible to be analyzed, and that is the reason for which literary men and critics differ widely in their assessment of the nature of an essay. Secondly, an essay may be written on any subject irrespective of it being high or low, slight or great. The art of English essay-writing is dependent on the adequate treatment of the concerning subject. The third relevant issue is the importance of the manner in writing an essay. In fact, it is the very manner, as a customary practice, a few observations may be made on essay and not the subject itself that counts in the essay, which has to be impressive and attractive enough in expression. The mode or the pattern of writing is the fourth aspect in the essay. There are no golden rules in terms of the narrative, reflective, subjective and so on, and the essayist may have his own choice of method. The golden key to good English essay writing is freedom of writing.
The writer is given the liberty to choose his own technique in order to make his writing impressive and attractive at the same time. The final observation in English essay writing is that there the style of the essay writer that cannot grow under the fetters of instructions. The style with which the essayist writes is the product of his independent self and may differ from other essay writers. It is needless to mention that English essay writing is a distinct form of literary art, and needs a very creative spirit as well as well as a creative way of writing. A good English essay writing depends, too, like other successful literary form, on the right interpretation of the matter and the manner, of the content and the form. Informality and freedom are the qualities of an essay as distinguished from a dissertation. The want of an organic quality and the absence of that orderly and logical mode of procedure that we look for in the more ambitious kinds of literature may be reckoned among the most pronounced structural peculiarities of the English essay writing. Essay rose because men felt a desire to express through a vehicle in which they could enjoy something of a freedom of expression.
The well-marked tendency among modern English essayists towards greater logical regularity and consistency of structure is only one among many other signs of the evolution of the literary type of English essay writing in response to changing conditions. With Lamb, Hazlitt and De Quincy, the English essay writing became the popular form in which the mind roams independently, soars and sinks. The mantle has fallen on the modern essayists.
Lucas says:

Essay Writing Tips - What's the Point?

Good writers often struggle with too much to say. They have a great idea, and they want to dazzle the reader with their knowledge and insight, and as a result, they often try to cram too much information into their writing. This is particularly true for the essay writer. Essays like this lead the reader to be confused, overwhelmed, or irritated. Readers like to walk away with new understanding or a fresh look at what they already know, and if they can't find "the point" in your writing, then they won't find time to read your ideas, no matter how great they are.
The solution to this problem is to avoid too many points in your writing. Every article, essay, or term paper should be able to be summarized in a single point. This is your thesis or argument. We've all heard this before, but often writers try to write about four or five points, when one, clearly explained, is better. No matter what you are writing, there should be a single focus in what you are trying to say.
Take a position in your work, and then follow that position all the way through the assignment. It's okay to have supporting statements, but be careful that they support your single focus, not introduce new ideas. This is where confusion comes in. Many essay writers confuse new ideas for supporting statements. Any supporting elements should be explanations of why your theme is true or not true, or why your position is valid. This is especially true for the student who is taking an essay exam or crafting a letter for scholarship applications. This type of written assignment is a bit shorter and students don't have time to develop multiple points in this limited format.
When you take a perspective in your writing, be sure that you use words that reiterate or emphasize the key idea throughout the writing. As you work through your draft, you can even circle or highlight your key terms so that you can visually see that you are making your single point clear to the reader. Another idea is to have someone read the essay and tell you what they believe your point to be. Obviously you cannot do this during an exam, but I highly encourage students who are completing homework essays or essays for any type of applications to have their writing reviewed before they submit their work.
The next time you read an essay or article written by another writer, notice that the good ones, the ones that you learn from or are encouraged by, keep you focused on a single thing to do or task to learn. They will reiterate their point clearly, and make it easy to understand. They will use familiar words and stick to a single point. Not only are essays like this easier to read, they are also easier to write!
