This week’s tip on writing amazing essays is actually a challenge!
We dare you to become Sherlock Holmes! Why?Well, in order for an essay to ‘flow’ you need to support each and every statement, argument or opinion with ‘evidence’, or in our case with reasons and examples but also to offer your readers a balanced perspective on the topic.
You must have read books or seen films whose protagonist was the great detective! But do you remember that before reaching a conclusion, Mr. Holmes takes his time to think the matter through and get a general overview of every thing that has happened? This is YOUR role in the ‘planning stage’ of writing. Do not rush to put all your thoughts down just as they occur to you! Take a few moments, order you thoughts and rank them into arguments, supporting ideas and examples. Work your way towards the conclusion from this point where you have gained a clear view of the topic.
REMEMBER, every time Sherlock solves a case, he does not only tell us who the villains and the victims are, but also when, how and why they act the way they do!
