Whether writing a review, a college essay, or a letter to my neighbors warning them that I have a tendency to sleepwalk and water my lawn in my pajamas-I sleep nude-in the morning, I sometimes find myself staring at a new word processing document that is just as blank as my mind when I am trying to fill it. Somebody once said that the first sentence is often the hardest to write and writer’s block makes it even harder. So rather than stare at the computer expecting it to type something on its own or futilely attempt to start an article by typing “Idiot. Idiot. Idiot. Idiot. Idiot. Idiot.” I decided on a few exercises used to get my creative juices flowing or at least motivate myself to get writing.
Repetition – Avoid repetition, write concisely using modern grammar techniques and get to the point without repeating the same sentences and ideas in multiple paragraphs. When in doubt, emulate a custom college essays.
The body is the least important part of your speech but it must filled with useful and meaningful information. It is the body that will explain the points that you submitted in your opening. Don’t wander from the plan that you laid out in your opening stay to the specifics and just explain your original points. If you have three points than write three supporting paragraphs. You don’t need any more or any less information.
You can accomplish this task by using a quote, a startling statistic or a controversial phrase. Each of these methods work equally well as long as it fits your topic. Don’t use something custom college essay just to use it. It must fit logically.
If your school offers an ERB (a skills and knowledge test) or the PSAT in the ninth grade, use these scores to identify academic strengths and weaknesses. Don’t worry about preparing for these tests, but do talk with a parent or guidance counselor to help you understand your underperformance or get extra academic support in areas where you were weaker.
Attend college fairs, but remember there is much more to a college than fun handouts. Talk with the folks behind the tables, who can give you a better feel for a school and might be good future contacts.
Edit and proofread. These last steps will fine-tune your essay and make it as good as you can possibly have it. Read it aloud to others, and see if it feels like you. Ask them if it sounds like you, as well. Check it carefully for grammar and punctuation. Consider other ways you can write each sentence to increase its clarity. These little things won’t necessarily make you stand out, but they will help you avoid standing out in a bad way!
