The first step when working out how to write essays is to decide what your subject or theme will be. Knowing the subject of your essay enables you to focus your efforts. You can immerse yourself in finding out all there is to know about a particular topic without any chance of getting distracted. If possible, pick a subject you are interested in, because this will make writing the essay much easier. Even if you have been given a topic, try and find an angle to it that has some interest to you. Good resources for essay material are the internet, written or e-books, journals or even interviews of people versed in your chosen subject.
Depending on your topic, you probably want to do some research. Finding out as much as you can about your topic not only allows you to better support your argument, it also allows you to write in a voice of authority. Whoever reads your essays will pick up on your sense of self-confidence while writing them, and your essays will become more convincing as a result.
This is a very important aspect of how to write essays. Lets say you have 2000 words to write for the whole essay and 5 main points, with 2 subpoints for each. Remember that you will also need an introductory and concluding paragraph, so that makes it about 12 paragraphs in total. This means you will need to write about 150-200 words per paragraph or sub point. Once you start to break it down in this way, you can see that learning how to write essays is not overwhelming - all you have to do is write a short piece of text for each of the ideas you are presenting.
