We've already discussed Letter Writing and today we'll discuss Essay Writing and we'll give you some tips on it.

To write an essay, a proper planning is needed. In the examination, you don't get much time to think or to plan. Shakespeare has said, , "the pen is mightier than the sword," the pen itself is not enough to make an effective writer. In fact, though we may all like to think of ourselves as the next Shakespeare, inspiration alone is not the key to effective essay writing.

Lets have a look at TIPS for Essay Writing.

An Essay broadly consist of three part:

1) Introduction
2) Body
3) Conclusion

And you must frame your essay keeping these three parts in mind. That way you can score easily and you'll be able to covey your idea effectively.

Introduction :

Introduction is one of the most important part of your essay that can either leave a good or bad impression on the reader. And remember, if you get a grip on it then rest won't matter much. Suppose if "Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao" is given as topic then to introduce the essay, you need to be aware of the motive and the essence behind the scheme.

Active voice, wherein the subjects direct actions rather than let the actions "happen to" them – "he scored a 99%" instead of "he was given a 99%" – is a much more powerful and attention-grabbing way to write. At the same time, unless it is a personal narrative, avoid personal pronouns like I, My, or Me. Try instead to be more general and you will have your reader hooked.

Body :

Once the introduction part is over then you have to include bits and pieces of the topic. It can include anything and while writing the body, you have to be careful about the facts and figures. That doesn't mean that it has to be accurate but you can use the approximate figures. For the first body paragraph you should use your strongest argument or most significant example unless some other more obvious beginning point (as in the case of chronological explanations) is required. The first sentence of this paragraph should be the topic sentence of the paragraph that directly relates to the examples listed in the mini-outline of introductory paragraph.

When you present facts in the essay, it shows how aware you are of the surrounding world. And also it looks good.

Conclusion :

Conclusion is the part that includes the summary and things that can be improved. As the final paragraph is represents your last chance to make your case and, as such, should follow an extremely rigid format. You can read various examples of Essay and you can observe certain points because the conclusion part is very common and you can pick certain ready made points. But be careful while using them in your essay.

What are different Types of Essay Writing Styles?

Persuasive Essays: Convince the Reader
The idea of persuasive essay is to convince the reader to accept the writer’s point of view or recommendation. The writer must build a case using facts and logic, as well as examples, expert opinion, and sound reasoning.Here your rationale, your argument, is most important. You are presenting an opinion and trying to persuade readers, you want to win readers over to your point of view.

Descriptive Essays: Painting a Picture
A descriptive essay allows a reader to understand the essay's subject using illustrative language.This type of essay is not description for description’s sake. The descriptive essay strives to communicate a deeper meaning through the description. In a descriptive essay, the writer should show, not tell, through the use of colorful words and sensory details.

Narrative Essays: Story Telling
In a narrative essay, the writer tells a story about a real-life experience. Narrative essays are told from a defined point of view, often the author's, so there is feeling as well as specific and often sensory details provided to get the reader involved in the elements and sequence of the story. The verbs are vivid and precise.

Expository Essays: All about Facts
This is a writer’s explanation of a short theme, idea or issue. The purpose of an expository essay is to present, completely, fairly and objectively, other people's views or to report about an event, situation or process. It prefers facts over opinions. In this type of essay, the writer explains or defines a topic, using facts, statistics, and examples.

Tips :

 Start each paragraph with a topic sentence that clearly links the paragraph to the rest of the essay.
