Vital Writing Instructions On How To Complete A Catchy Essay

A Catchy Concept

A well-written essay, a “catchy,” essay, must have all kinds of elements. But to have a catchy essay, one needs a catchy, interesting concept.

There are ways to find very current topics on any subject and put your own “spin” on them. What you need is to get a sense of the very current climate of things. Do some Google’s on what is hot now, what new diet tends are trending, what new lifestyle trends are trending, for example.

For example, I thought of a great concept the other day—I already blogged the title, dears, so think about a title of your own, please—“Raw Milk Something to Go Over the Moo-n About.” And then I discussed all the benefits of raw milk which are many indeed. They are saying now that raw milk may cure autism, allergies, and even cancer one day.

Back to what an essay needs to be spectacular.

Form as Well as Content

A great essay must have form as well as content. You must follow the essay form, which may differ depending upon your professor and / or instructor’s instructions for the essay. For example, a narrative essay or informative essay follows a strict introduction, body evidence paragraphs, and conclusion type of format, while the persuasive and argumentative essays follow yet another type of format.

Outline Form of Argumentative, Persuasive, Argumentative/Persuasive, and Call to Action Papers

  • Introduction
  • Introduction (2nd paragraph – optional)
  • Thesis at the end of which ever introduction comes last (if there’s only one fine. If you find you have a lot to say, however, give the reader two)
  • Evidence paragraph one
  • Evidence paragraphs 2-?
  • Acknowledge the rebuttal
  • Refute the most obvious rebuttal’s claims
  • Closing Paragraph

The Art of Introductory and Closing Paragraphs

Of all the paragraphs that students say they fear writing the most, they seem most confounded and confused by the paragraphs that begin and end an essay. This is probably due to the scariness with beginning something new, but the closing paragraph, those are difficult to strategize unless you know one trick.

For the introduction, then try to think of one interesting occurrence regarding your topic that you can discuss in two to three sentences before moving into a very solid thesis statement, which states exactly what you will do in your essay, “I will argue that . . “

In the closing paragraph, think of something this week or last developing regarding your topic.
