When writing an essay it is important to take your time and give your writing a lot of consideration When you start to think of something to write you should just write down whatever that comes to mind as a guideline and than focus on what you need and what you dont need This sure will help eliminate confusion Planning an essay topic is probably the hardest part to some writers Writers usually have some idea of what they want to write about The problem is that now they need to organize their idea and focus on what the essay will specifically be about Brainstorm about the general topic that was chosen to show an even more specific topic Write down any key words or phrases that can be related to the topic One of the key words or phrases could lead to a more specific idea for an essay Once a topic has been chosen the six basic questions can be asked to help supply information that will be given in the essay and could possibly even help discover an even more detailed topic for the essay The basic questions are WHO WHAT WHEN WHERE WHY HOW Now that the basic questions have been asked they will need to be answered Reading about the chosen topic and finding answers to the questions is the next step Write down notes or summarize the information If direct quotes or paraphrases are used the source will have to be mention in the essay Answering the basic questions should have supplied ideas for the thesis sentence The thesis sentence is the main idea of the essay It is the first sentence that expresses what the essay is about and from what position the essay is written The thesis sentence should not just be about a general topic It should clearly show the direction of the essay
