Writing an Essay?

Writing an Essay
   In college, students are required to write essays. Students (and people in general) (new to essay writing) often don't know what makes an essay different from a magazine article:

   An articles include: how-to, personal experience, interview, inspirational, humorous, historical, personal opinion,success story, technical articles. Article format depends on the writer's individual style.An article is usually based on facts. It has a particular slant, often backed up with quotes, anecdotes and statistics. While articles are often entertaining, articles are normally written to educate and inform.

      Origionaly,an essay  was written to express opinion,to be  persuasive, or to be interpretive.The essay has a more    personal treatment of the subject matter.It may require research [the found information ] is then used along with subjective ideas in an essay. 

Writing an Essay:

                    1. Pick a topic
                    2. Write down any idea that comes to your head about things you'd like to include, including key                              points,  examples, and illustrations.
                    3. Organize
                    4. Write your essay
                    5. Revise

An essay introduction should include three main things:

                    1. An opening hook to catch the reader's attention.

Examples: 
   Today, educators [knowningly or unknowingly] are allowing college students to graduate with master degrees, that they nether earned or deserved. The influence those in the "essays for sale" businesses is having on  students who are struggling  with writing essays is heart breaking. The mindset that its okay to cheat and steal other peoples' writing is bad enough but to sell essays, and allow the student victim to take credit for writing an essay he/she didn't write -serves no purpose but to deprive students of the self respect that comes from 'earning' ones MB degree...

  'Essays for sale' companies are using the internet to sell their services......

                    2. Relevant background information that the reader needs to know. [Here is where your rearch]

                    3. A thesis statement that presents your main point or argument.

These sites don't write essays for anyone-as I know of:

Don't cheat yourself. Set your goals in life,strive to obtain success. It's never okay to cheat or  steal....Earning what one get from life should be the creed of all.   -jt
