One of the main tasks of writing an essay can
be considered the conviction or motivation of the reader. When the author
decides to sit down for an essay, this means that he wants to either raise some
problem or show that the solution proposed by him is the right one. Even if
this essay is not an impulse of soul, but the task of a teacher, in any case,
everything comes down to these tasks.
The question of where to start writing an
essay has a clear answer: a plan. Suppose that a plan has already been drawn up

writing an essay do not end. After the introduction, it is necessary to
formulate theses and choose the arguments for the main part.

- Brainstorm. Just write down on a
sheet of paper all the ideas about your essay.
- Sampling. Now take up your written
sheet and pick out the arguments that you will use.
- Structuring. Usually the main idea
of each item is one thesis, which is revealed and confirmed.
- Documentation. If possible, use

each paragraph go to the new argument.
These essay writing rules are most general,
applicable to essays that affect any problems.

written in the main part. How to write conclusions:

issues outlined in the introductory part.

theses considered in the main part. It is not necessary to introduce new,
unproved theses in the conclusions.
