Suggestions for your Essay Writing

  • Manage your time and pace yourself throughout the creation of your essay.
  • Properly plan for your essay by creating an outline of your ideas. Use these outlined notes to organize your thoughts into a quality essay.
  • Include your personal definition of courage, not the dictionary’s definition – tell your story!
  • Include a strong introduction and conclusion in your essay.
  • Proofread your essay and allow someone else to peer edit. Make edits and revisions. The extra time you put into creating multiple drafts and refining your writing is always beneficial.
