How to Write Well at College

Generally speaking, no matter whether you’re a high school, college, or university student who is writing an essay. The steps to follow will be almost the same for all. To make a long story short, you need a topic, knowledge of the subject, and the research to do. So, how to implement those three steps in practice, dividing them into smaller things to do?

Before we skip to practical recommendations, let us make a few assumptions on how you can improve your writing skills on a daily basis. The best and the most effective way of improving your writing skills is reading. If you read a lot, you write better. Reading allows to develop and express your ideas in a different, unique way. No matter which genre or author is your favorite one. Reading, in general, is the fastest way to improving your writing skills. So, if you have at least a couple of free minutes, spend them on reading instead of browsing online.

And now let’s look at some practical steps, which can improve your writing skills instantly.

Writing like a Pro

  • When you get a topic, read it trying to understand what the content should be about. Work out what type of essay you should compose, and highlight the keywords in the topic. The keywords give you a hint of what you should focus your attention on. Is it about the comparison? Is it about the description? Is it about analysis? Define the central piece of your essay through the topic;
  • Plan what you’re going to compose. Think about the structure of an essay. Don’t skip this step even if you know well what structure you should stick to. Create a plan to guide you through the whole writing process;
  • Think about the information, which you’re going to use to backup your ideas. Which sources are you going to refer to? What we can recommend is not to rely on online platforms only. Firstly, check the library and only then look for something interesting and unique online. Make sure all sources, which you’re going to use in your essay are reliable enough;
  • Develop your own ideas. Don’t go to the books immediately. First of all, express your own thoughts on the topic on a separate sheet of paper. Write down literally everything you can say about the question. Then, filter that information and pick only the best ideas;
  • Before writing an essay, think about the tone and the mood of it. Which language are you going to use? Who is your targeted audience? What we can recommend is avoiding too simple as well as very academic vocabulary. Your work should be understandable for your teacher. Avoid slang and cliche phrases. The complexity of your sentences matters. Don’t write five sentences if you can express the idea in one sentence only;
  • Stick to a 5-paragraph essay formula. To make a writing process easier, always stick with a well-known 5-paragraph structure: introduction, three body parts, and conclusion. This is a core of every essay, which you should base the content on.

Now you know a few very important tips on how to improve your writing skills without extraordinary efforts. Just apply all of those recommendations on practice and you’ll see wonderful results very soon. Practice makes perfect. So, don’t forget to read and practice in writing all the time.
