Understand the Title
Before doing anything the most important part is to understand what exactly the title of given essay is? This is the most basic ingredient of writing an essay. There are always great chances that an individual has written a great essay but he might fail to achieve good grades because what he wrote was not according to the title. There is also a possibility that the title has demanded something else to be written on the same topic, but mistakenly another aspect of the same topic has been discussed in the essay.
Brainstorming is the Key
After the title has been clearly understood, comes in the next phase. And this is the phase to orally think of the ideas. What should I write in my essay? This is a phase where brainstorming is useful. Brainstorming with friends, seniors or with any family member can help to generate more and more ideas. A general problem which has been observed that students sometimes have many ideas and they are confused what ideas should be put in. Either one idea should be used or all the ideas should be used? At this confusing stage the best way is to narrow down the ideas one by one. Soon an individual will be left only with those ideas which are linked with the topic and are very precise. Instead of doing this task orally it is better to note down all the ideas and eliminating the irrelevant ideas on paper so that it is assured that no relevant has been left out.
