Learn the art of Essay Writing



Essay writing is an art which is practised by those that yearn for creativity enriched with style as well as clarity of meaning. A true essayist remains impartial even to the topics of the most personal interest. It is this objectivity which must be displayed in the art of writing, called Essay Writing.

It is, sometimes, painstaking to find fault with the things we like but one must do so in order to truly portray the pros and cons of the topic we endeavour to bring into the focus of our audience. Therefore, after objectivity, the second goal of an essayist must be the sequential presentation of facts without distortion or evil selection.

Undoubtedly, a healthy vocabulary is as good for the essayist as an anchor for a returning ship, vocabulary plays the vital role of for an essayist while manifesting the scope and flight of his ideas onto the piece of paper.

In order to make things easier, I propose the following ingredients of a successful essayist:

1. Objectivity

2. Detailed discussion of the Topic

3. Logical And Literary References

4. Weighing The Arguments

5. A Healthy Vocabulary

6. Naturally Leading to the conclusion instead of forcing it onto the readers



We must avoid the below mentioned points in Essays Writing:

1. Subjectivity

2. Lack of research

3. Illogical arguments

4. Poor usage of language

5. Crafted conclusions.

Finally, the below structure may help in early development of essay writing:

1. Introduction to the topic: it can be a brief background of the topic or the scope of the topic e.g. if we are writing on the topic of poverty, we can define poverty by definition, its effects on man and the poverty situtation in the world.

2. Positive aspects: If the topic permits, we may define positive aspects of the matter under discussion. It is interesting to note that even the worst of things do have positive aspects. For instance "poverty" is considered an ill thing but the same poverty is considered the best test of the great minds and bodies.

3. Negative aspects: Well negative sides of any topic are easier to find,so we generally have plenty to write for it.

4. Comparisons with other options/countries: we can create comparisons between countries or even groups of countries to discuss how a particular matter or issue was resolved or controlled by a few countries.

5. Conclusion: We must conclude in an impersonal manner where the reader does not feel our prejudices or favours.
