Things to Consider for Writing an Impressive Essay

June 27, 2014

Writing an essay for submission may often become daunting if you are not aware of the tactics, or haven’t written one before. Addressing the topic assigned, organizing it well, and finally concluding it with a summarized concluding paragraph requires a great deal of planning, knowledge and strategic approach to make it work.  

Let’s have a look at what the approach should be, and the do’s and don'ts of essay writing



Do Spare Time: It’s always better to start early, ideally two weeks early, but ten days would also work. Try to start as early as possible to plan your writing phases beforehand, rather than writing and concluding the essay in a hurry.

Do Be Illustrative: Try to be more comprehensive and descriptive. This can be done by using active verbs and dynamic nouns. “The red car halted directly in front of me,” is nothing in comparison with, “The car squealed to a halt inches from my face”.

Do Take Breaks: Writing happens in fits and starts. If you think you are comfortable writing continuously, better you continue. If you’re held up with a nasty case of writer’s block, the best remedy is a brief break, nap, some exercise, your favourite movie, or anything else that unwinds you for a while.

Do Let Someone Review your Piece: Get someone i.e., a close friend, teacher, counselor, or professional, to go through your essay. This will give you valuable insight, as you may overlook problem areas that may require a new perspective to detect.



Don’t Exceed the Word Limit: Consider this as one of the standing rules. No reason can ever bypass the set rules of essay submission, and doing so will be reflected in poor scores.

Don’t Overuse Idioms: Too much use of clichés or idioms can spoil the very tempo and essence of the essay by halting the flow of piece. Keep it simple, easy flowing and easily understandable, without any need to constantly refer to a dictionary.

Don’t Blindly Rely on Spell Check: Automatic and inbuilt tools in programs like Microsoft Word are helpful, but they cannot be infallible. Better you proof it yourself in addition to running it through spell check. Double checking is always suggested for the finest product! 

Don’t Completely Stress Out: Yes, this is vital. It takes a lot of work, but the world doesn’t end with your writing. You quite likely have many reasons to rejoice and be happy! Find the time to wind down and enjoy the things that are important in your life. This will also be reflected in your write ups.

Crafting a unique and commendable essay is not as difficult as it appears to be, but there are a few do’s and don’ts that need to be considered to make it impressive and informative. Proofreading is an imperative part of any written work and essay writing is no exception. Don’t forget to get it proofread professionally once you’re through! 


Proofreading Vs Editing Services - De Facto Difference

June 26, 2014

Often confused with editing, proofreading is altogether a different task that is done at a different time during the publication procedure. Although editing can be done at any stage of writing i.e. overall writing or submission activity, proofreading is always performed in the final stage of writing, immediately prior to publishing the piece to detect all of the errors and mistakes in any written literature, before it is finally submitted for printing.

What Does Proofreading Entail?

April 16, 2014
Proofreading, quite simply, is the stage of writing where the document is gone through with a fine-tooth comb, in order to check for any remaining errors in the text.

Allude or Elude

May 16, 2013
It can be easy to mix up allude and elude when writing. They sound quite similar when spoken, and they are not incredibly common words. Still, these two words express completely different things, and should be used appropriately. Word choice may not seem like an important matter, but it can play a significant role in helping your reader grasping what you are trying to say. It is worthwhile to make sure you are using the 'right' words in your writing. The 'right' words are those that are appro...

How to Reference Edited Books

May 13, 2013

An edited book is a collection of articles or chapters- written by different authors- on the same theme, which have been collected together by one or more persons called “editors”.

At first sight, the role of an editor seems straightforward: take the material written by the authors and put them together in a book. Although the book is the outcome of the editor, the editing tasks are more complex that people, who are not related to the publishing world, may think. In fact, the number an...

Criteria or Criterion?

May 6, 2013

It can be easy to use the wrong words when writing academic documents. Often spoken English is, in a sense, more relaxed than written, academic English. We can get away with things when we speak that we cannot get away with when we write. One area where people tend to make mistakes is in their use of singular and plural forms of words. When we speak we might get away with misusing the singular or plural form of a word, but this will not work when we are writing. Too much hangs on the words we...
