Typical writing mistakes

Essay writing

Some essays we read with pleasure in the next magazine or collection. Others we run through with our eyes and do not remember. Others become literary monuments. And it's not just the talent of the paper writer. Much depends on what topic you reveal and to whom you write.

There are many kinds of essays. For example, there are philosophical, artistic, historical, spiritual-religious, literary-critical essays. According to the form they are divided into notes, letters, lyrical miniatures, and reviews. According to the method of presentation - into descriptive and narrative, analytical and critical, essay-illustrations, classifications and others.

More lyrics!

A lyric captures the reader. He will be very interested to know how you got to this life, how beautiful the sunset in your small motherland is, how great it is that you came to Zlatoglavaya, how you enjoyed the ringing of the bells before you took up your pen. More vintage epithets, more metaphors and comparisons - this is sure to be appreciated. If they understand it.

The more the introduction, the better.

Be sure to tell the reader about your life, who your parents and grandparents were, what drove you to the topic of the essay. An introduction that takes up half the text is sure to intrigue the reader.

Don't elaborate on anything - general words are your everything!

And in general, you need more water and clichés. Talk about how important it is that you went to study as a teacher, translator, engineer, manager, in what a wonderful place is your university, office or town, how great it would be if the world would end wars. Asked to write about what you would like to change about your university? Be sure to talk about teacher training and salary increases, new renovations, or curriculum enhancements. Don't give any specific names or facts.

More facts!

Don't know how to make a molehill out of a molehill? Do the opposite - fill your essay with facts. Names, dates, names of studies, their results, city and world news - everything will do. Your reader is sure to be amazed by your erudition and ability to work with information.  Make your conclusions shorter - you're writing for academics, who are able to find the logic and summarize.

The longer the sentences, the more "clever" the author looks.

Remember the classics and their half-page sentences? You can do the same - everyone studied syntax at school, and the participles and derivatives after a little practice is not difficult to use. Use as many clever and simply long words as you can, and build large and verbose sentences. That way you will appear very clever in the eyes of the reader. The reader will simply get scared after the first paragraph and close your essay, disappointed in his or her own intelligence.

Never, under any circumstances, reread your text.

The man is not a writer, the man is a reader. You did not write for yourself, but for others, so let those others read your essay and admire your talent. It does not matter how many "fleas" the reader catches in your text, and how logical it seems to him the presentation. You are a talent that doesn't need proofreading or editing. And that's it.

Follow these tips, and you can write the most "brilliant" opuses. Perhaps they will even keep them in memory.
