Don't have time for writing? Pick easy essay topics to finish your paper in hour
Pick a topic. Find a keyword related to your class, or the broad topic assigned to you. Narrow it down with a time frame, or a genre, or a year, in order to fit the number of pages required. Then start writing.
If you are pressed for time and you need to write a good essay in a short amount of time, the trick is to stay focused and to have all of the right pieces.
- First, you need to write out the points that your paper will make on a sheet of paper. Writing down the key points you want to make will ensure you don’t forget them and will make the writing process shorter for you.
- Start with a solid introduction. This part of the essay does not have to be that long, and is the best part because it offers a map, introducing to the reader one sentence to correspond with every paragraph in your paper. It starts with your big thesis, and it ends with a transitional sentence. If you have five body paragraphs, each with a different point, then you want five sentences included in your introduction which give the reader a bit of insight into the five points you are going to make in the body. If you have three body paragraphs, then you need three sentences in your introduction.
- Write your body paragraphs. These should correspond with the argumentative points you made on your outline. Look over the sheet of paper that you write out the key points on and make sure you cover each of them in a different paragraph in the body of your text. Cross them out from the outline paper you used as you go along so that you avoid repetition.
- Finally, make sure to conclude your essay like you did the introduction: you should have a rephrasing of your thesis, followed by a sentence to surmise the assertions you made in each of the body paragraphs, and finally, it should end with a bang, something that catches the eye of the reader or leaves them thinking about how your topic relates to the bigger picture.
When all is said and done, it is time to proofread. You need to proofread the paper and look for any errors in transition, see if any parts lack appropriate evidence, see if there are areas where you might be able to improve the diction, change the words around, or remove redundancies. You should end by reviewing your paper for any smaller, sentence by sentence errors such as spelling and grammar errors. These should be removed before you submit your final paper.
