Essay Writing Process

Your essay will lead your reader through your organized thoughts on a single topic. Before you begin writing your essay, it's a good idea to gather the nuts and bolts of essay writing. Learn about the different steps of essay writing and how to both outline and format your essay. Knowing the basics makes the essay writing process easier.

Brainstorming Your Essay
Whether the topic is your choice or it is assigned, a good way to begin the essay writing process is to brainstorm.

An easy way to start brainstorming is to use a list or a tree (example below). Another popular brainstorming technique is to radiate your ideas out from the center of a circle. Start with a title. If the topic was assigned, use the topic as your brainstorming title, such as "Essay on Hamlet" or "Essay on Logical Thinking". If you need to choose a topic, use the reason you are writing the essay as your brainstorming title, such as "Personal Experience Essay" or "Essay for History".

Brainstorming is creating a list of whatever comes to mind. For instance, a list on "Essay on Hamlet" might look like this:
