MISTAKES TO BE AVOIDED IN ESSAY WRITING

We make a variety of errors in our writings when we asked to write an Essay in short time that too about a Fairly new topic.  What follows is a list of things to avoid which weaken your essays and are actually considered wrong in essay writing.

 
1. DON’T MENTION THE ESSAY ITSELF.
Example: “After reading this essay…” or “In my essay…” or “In this essay…” or “This essay will discuss…” etc.


2. DON’T MENTION ANY PART OF THE ESSAY.
Example:  “In this paragraph…” or “This paragraph will discuss…” or “In the next paragraph” or “The body of this essay will…” 


3. DON'T USE "LIKE" IN YOUR ESSAY WHEN YOU INTEND TO PROVIDE AN EXAMPLE OR CLARIFY SOMETHING. (review your handout on transitions for ideas.)
Example: This happens many times throughout the novel like when...
Use "for example" or "for instance" or "such as"
Example: This happens many times throughout the novel; for instance, when...
*Note punctuation. 


4. DON’T JUST STATE A FACT IN YOUR THESIS STATEMENT; DIRECT YOUR ESSAY.
Example: “Orange juice in a box is good.”  This thesis statement doesn’t direct your essay and is difficult to support in an essay. However, the thesis “Orange juice in a box is better than orange juice in a bottle” does direct the essay and is supportable. 


5. DON’T START YOUR ESSAY WITH ONLY A THESIS STATEMENT.  YOU MUST HAVE AN INTRODUCTORY PARAGRAPH AND LEAD YOUR READER TO THE THESIS.

6.  MAKE SURE EACH PARAGRAPH HAS A MINIMUM OF 3 SENTENCES IN IT.  Each sentence should relate only to whatever “reason” or “evidence” you are presenting in that paragraph. (Don't confuse sentences with lines!) 

7.  MAKE SURE YOUR ESSAY HAS A MINIMUM OF FIVE PARAGRAPHS TOTAL.
 
8.  DON’T USE ABBREVIATIONS LIKE YOU WOULD WHILE USING FB.
Example: Using the letter ‘U’ instead of the word ‘you’ or the number 2 instead of the word ‘to’, etc.  Also be sure to capitalize the letter ‘I’ when referring to yourself!


I did many of the listed mistakes, and still to come out of some of them. Hope you do take care of your Essay writings taking these into consideration.
