How To Write An Essay Or Article - By Example

Writing an essay or an article is not difficult. You have to be a little creative and imaginative at putting your thoughts on paper.

First you have to think and give an outline to your thoughts on the topic you want to write about.

Lets take a simple example. Suppose you are asked or want to write a short essay/article on how you repaired a fuse that had blown off in your house, in a class or on some website.

Lets outline the procedure first.

1. I switched off the main switch.
2. I took the fuse out from the fuse box.
3. I had some fuse wire and screw driver.
4. I unscrewed the two screws that held the blown out wire and removed it.
5. I took the new fuse wire, twisted it around the first screw and then stretched it to the second screw.
6. I twisted it again around the second screw and tightened up both the screws.
7. I fitted back the repaired fuse in the fuse box.
8. I switched on the main switch and the power came back.

Now these 8 steps highlight the main content of your topic. But are these 8 steps enough for your topic?

Everyone would be writing these steps in their topics. How can you be different from the rest so that your essay or article receives its due attention and appreciation?

Here you have to be a bit more creative and imaginative in your thoughts and writing. You have to divide your topic in a number of short relevant paragraphs and your sentences should be short. If they tend to be long, they should include commas as pauses, in the right places.

You can begin your topic with a situation instead of just starting with the first point. Like:

"I was watching a movie after dinner and suddenly I found myself engulfed in darkness. Everything around me had gone quiet and pitch dark. Soon I realized that the power had gone."

You can make it more expressive...

"I was watching a horror movie after dinner and suddenly I found myself engulfed in darkness. Everything around me had gone quiet and pitch dark. With my thoughts still on the movie, I was a bit terrified. Sitting in my couch, I was motionless and tense for a while. I soon realized that the power had gone."

To further extend it...

"I slowly got up feeling around for things. I knew I had to find my torch and take a look at the fuse box before calling for help. I bumped into the table before making my way towards the end of the hall. I felt for the side board kept in the gallery in the darkness. With just my sense of touch to rely on, I reached for the drawer and felt for the torch. Something sharp pricked my middle finger. Maybe it was loose pin, I thought and continued my search. Reaching deeper in the drawer I found the torch at the very back."

Now you can begin with repairing of the fuse.

Equally important is how imaginative you are at ending your topic. If you make an abrupt ending, your topic is going to loose some of its shine. You have to finish it with an equally polished ending as you had begun your topic.

Here I am writing the whole topic for you to study and read as an example for, how to end up writing great essays or articles.

How I repaired a blown Fuse in my House

I was watching a horror movie after dinner and suddenly I found myself engulfed in darkness. Everything around me had gone quiet and pitch dark. With my thoughts still on the movie, I was a bit terrified. Sitting in my couch, I was motionless and tense for a while. I soon realized that the power had gone.

I slowly got up, feeling around for things. I knew I had to find my torch and take a look at the fuse box before calling for help. I bumped into the table before making my way towards the end of the hall. I felt for the side board kept in the gallery in the darkness. With just my sense of touch to rely on, I reached for the drawer and felt for the torch. Something sharp pricked my middle finger. Maybe it was loose pin, I thought and continued my search. Reaching deeper in the drawer I found the torch at the very back.

I switched the torch on and a dim beam lit up my surrounding. The cells had gone weak. I hadn't had the chance to replace them and I made a mental note to do it tomorrow. Still it was better than nothing and thanking my stars for what ever light the torch provided, I found the screwdriver in the next drawer along with some fuse wire.

Armed with the tools and feeling of achieving something great, I slowly walked back into the hall, as the fuse box was in the opposite direction to the gallery. The refrigerator was right next to the fuse box. I switched off the main switch as a precautionary measure. Then I opened up the fuse box and pulled out the fuse.

In the dim torch light, I could see that the fuse wire had blown up. This should be easy to repair, I thought.

Placing the torch on the refrigerator, I loosened both the screws on the fuse. I untwisted the burnt out wire and took it out. I reached for the new fuse wire kept along with the torch on the refrigerator. I twisted its one end around the first screw and then stretched it towards the second screw. After twisting it around the second screw firmly, I tightened both the screws back.

Fitting back the fuse in the fuse box, I pressed it lightly to make sure it did not remain loose.

I switched on the main switch and the low hum of the refrigerator told me that the power was back.

Savoring my achievement, I replaced the torch and the screw driver back in the drawer and jumped back in my couch to watch the rest of the movie.Read more info of Prescott Papers visit this website.

Just apply your imagination to the topic you want to write about. Be as expressive as you can be in your thoughts before writing. To get noticed write differently. Edit and revise your essay or article, refine its finer points.

Once you start applying this to short essays or articles, you will never be averse to writing bigger stories or even novels.
