Start your tale with relatable information. If the ‘do my homework’ call didn’t work and you have to scribble on your own, write something that is tangible and will make people look at each other and say: “That’s so true!” Describe a situation where you’ve been forced to act out of your line or answer questions you haven’t been prepared for. Imagine an everyday situation (it may be awkward or funny) each of us could have been trapped in and create rapport with your readers by making it echo with their own fables.
Go on with the rhetorical question. You can open your essay with a deep thought that needs to be analyzed through and through. There is no need for you to give an immediate answer to the problem you put forward, but it has to be provoking at the very least. This way, you will grab your reader’s attention and make them return to the same idea again and again, viewing it from another angle. Begin with a question mark and reveal your thoughts on the subject as the narrative progresses.
Try to avoid first-person use, if it’s not indicated in the instructions. It actually makes people think they are reading memoirs or an extract from a diary (in this case, the ‘I’ use is completely justified). If you are doing your college homework, on the other hand, and trying to impress the audience, you can select a second person narrative that is totally okay to connect with the reader. Third person is also quite good, but it sounds a bit impersonal if used continuously.
Choose a style that matches your own feelings at the moment. Again, if you are given certain requirements that can’t be violated, it’s impossible to develop an individual author’s tone, but you can try. If you are sitting still and hours pass by without you actually starting to write, walk around university hall or an apartment to stimulate the process. You can talk to people (another great source of information) or just pretend that you are talking. Recording your own voice will help you concentrate and pick out sensible thoughts.
Elucidate the main points at the beginning and create an outline that will make a framework of your future essay. You can write your grand finale at first, if you know exactly what you want from your target audience or illuminate the major points in the thesis. There is no need to follow a structure when you have nothing but the blueprint. Do not forget to add details and background information if you are telling a personal story.
If you have to write about studying curriculum, be sure to include every part of your schedule. What seems obvious and unsurprising to you may be novelty for other people. We are all different, and perhaps the way you go about your day will help others with their routines.
