How To Write A Good Paper
Following are the most trusted ways to write a good pager.
#1. Pick a topic
This may not be as easy as it sounds – unless you already have your topic assigned. The problem is when you actually have to choose it yourself. What should you write about? What kind of paper are you supposed to compose? Are you going to use a specific analysis? But if we really think about it, it’s not that bad – you can actually choose a topic that might interest you.
So the first thing you need to do is decide if the paper should inform or persuade. If the goal is to inform, do a paper on something that’s been already studied. If the goal is to persuade, choose something you love. Then do some research regarding what topic should you choose – think about the things you find interesting.
#2. Make a plan
For your paper to be that good, you need to make a plan of ideas. Put all of your ideas on the paper. This way it would be easier for you to see connections between your ideas and your essay will have a good structure.
In making the plan, you can either enumerate some ideas or make a diagram.
For the diagram, it’s easier to write the subject of the topic in the middle of your page and draw lines, like some branches, and write ideas at the end of them. It will look like a bunch.
For the outline, just write the subject at the top of the page and make a list of all of your ideas. From those principle ideas, see if you can write some other small ideas – you might actually get an organized structure this way.
#3. Write the introduction
This is the part where you initiate the reader in your subject. Tell him what you’re going to write about. Start with some main ideas. With baby steps introduce him into the body of the essay, by explaining to him the goal and the facts that you are writing about. Tell him about how your topic can change the world. Tell him why you chose this topic.
#4. Write the body
This is the part where you explain the subject of your topic in detail. Each part of your diagram or plan will become a new idea in your essay, which will have its own paragraph. They will have the same structure. Start with writing the first main idea and try to connect it with the other small ideas. Also, don’t forget to give examples.
#5. Write the conclusion
The conclusion brings some final ideas of the topic and totals up your general thoughts while giving the last viewpoint about your chosen subject. Write about 6 sentences. Make sure you’re adding again the main ideas and how you proved your point.
