There are many important steps in writing an essay. Essays are a significant part of any student’s grade in most English classes, whether in high school, college, or even those studying for Masters and a PhD. Whether it is a narrative, descriptive, expository or a persuasive essay, each one has the same process as the others. Although depending on the class level one is at, the writing process might be more or less complex. For example, if one is writing a research paper in a Composition class at a university, he or she will probably need to do a deeper, more detailed research than someone in a first level English class in high school would need to do when writing a research paper. There are many steps when writing a paper, from picking a topic, to typing out the final draft. First, the writer must pick a topic, unless the topic is already assigned by the professor. Choosing a topic for an essay is one of the most important parts of writing an essay. The writer must keep in consideration the audience and the type of essay that has been assigned. For example, if the essay assigned is a persuasive one, the ideal topic would be one that the writer strongly agrees on. In a narrative essay, the writer would have to write about a real-life experience. For a process analysis essay, like this one, the writer will need to have good background knowledge on the topic chosen. Next step, the writer will generate some ideas, and then organize those ideas. There are many different ways to come up with ideas for an essay. The writer can free write, which means writing whatever comes to mind to the writer, then organizing the ideas later. Another very good method is brainstorming. The writer will write all of the ideas that they can come up with; usually when one brainstorms, he or she makes a list when coming up with the ideas.

When making a citations page, most students will take the URL of a webpage, copy it, and then paste it on an online citation generator such as EasyBib. Then the writer takes that creation and will put it on the citations page giving credit to where it’s due.
The writing process is a very important part in writing an essay for English or writing classes that will be needed in any school at any level. Choosing a topic, organizing ideas, preparing a rough draft, revising an essay, and creating a citation page are the main steps for writing that will allow a writer to create a well-developed essay. During the writing process every step is as important as the last. If a student follows this process constantly, they will write grade “A” papers on a regular basis and will be able to impress the teacher/professor.
