Basic rules for writing
Perhaps someone will glance past these rules, but then his problem is unlikely to budge. Inattention to the basic rules and failures lie.
1. essay - a genre that denies rewriting. Studying critical literature and choosing “juicy” sentences, we do not enrich our work, but plagiarize. Children, of course, should turn to the so-called “criticism”, but only to direct the thought in the right direction, to make sure that he understood the main idea of the work, whether he noticed everything. The philosophy of the work with prying eyes will help you for your inner work, for a deep understanding of the work. So try to lok at some articles about how to write 500 word essay or how to write 100 word essay. It will help you anywey to understend better how essay should look like. But thoughts, impressions, conclusions and statements should be only one author - the author of the essay itself.
2. If you are writing an essay on a literary work (and this is the most common option for a student), the work must be read. And the summary here is not suitable. In general, it is difficult to explain why these publications with a brief content of literary works are generally needed. The course of school literature includes only outstanding works, classics of literature, artistic and spiritual heritage, and heritage. And the child must understand this. He must see in the novel, poem or story a deep meaning, an unusual plot, a talented word and, attention, relevance. Why is it worth reading this book today? Without an answer to this question, it is impossible to arouse real interest in literature.
3. To write an essay, you need a plan. This is understood even by those who are superbly successful in our business. But if it is enough for someone to outline the plan “in the mind”, then for those who are not particularly successful in writing essays, you still need to write down a plan, but do not forget about the notes. In principle, three parts remain unchanged: the introduction, the main part and the conclusion. The entry anticipates the main part, there is a place in it to express your emotions and feelings, the introduction captivates and “advertises” the main part. Epigraphs are often used here, interesting statements are made, the general mood of the essay is set here.
4. In the main part, the author directly reveals the theme of the essay . If this is an image of a hero, then he is considered holistically, without leaving “overboard” important details, for some reason the sides noted by the author. Do not write if you do not fully understand everything in the work, if the storyline for you is somewhere lost. It may be worth rereading the work. Do not be afraid to ask the teacher, he will only approve your interest and inquisitiveness.
5. If, nevertheless, you liked the critic’s thought very much, then try to develop it and explain it in your own words. Then evaluate whether it will be tied to the main theme of the essay, to the general text. But it's better to resort to quotes. This will not only emphasize your awareness and willingness to work, but it will also be ethical.
6. You need to read good essays. Their samples are now easy to find in special manuals on the Internet. After reading more than one sample, you will appreciate the features of the structure of the essay , the language of the author, style. One way or another, you will want to copy what you read, and this will direct you to the right track.
7. And the last rule: do not sit behind a blank sheet. This means that in your head you should already have a certain image of the future essay . It is difficult to sit at a desk and imagine what and how I will write. But, for example, you go to the store, walk the dog, wash the dishes and ... give birth to the future essay in the mind. It is worth a try and the result will pleasantly surprise you.
And, of course, the most important thing is to listen to the teacher. After all, you do not require superknowledge and super-skill, which means that you can do everything. Learning to write essays is a big work that will certainly come in handy in the future; beautiful, competent speech and the ability to express one’s point of view are significant acquisitions in the modern world.
