When am writing an essay, I always use these strategy.

First I think about a topic, that I know little bit about, or new, but interests me. Next I make a plan.

Planning and brain storming is one of the keys for proper essay, I use graphic organizer for my ideas, after I do that i focus how to put them together, we all know proper essay should have introduction body, and conclusion. I also spend some time thinking what kind of essay I should write, if it’s narrative, persuasive or expositor. Finding the type of essay I am writing make my ideas more clear because my personal narrative essay doesn’t look same as expositor essay.

This is how I begin an essay when I am writing MY good copy. I start with an introduction, which has my main idea or the big picture of my topic and then move from general to specific and appropriately introduce and outline the topic.

The second following thing is the body which is mostly supporting my introduction or my bigger picture of the idea, we usually find this part details that supports the main topic.

Conclusion which is wrapping up all the things I said in the body and introduction by few sentences, so the reader can have a full idea of the argument or experience I mentioned. All the writing and organising is done now, but wait I didn’t do the revising which is the area I always find it the hardest. I usually don’t revise properly, however this particular essay I will try my very best to revise it properly. Once I finish my essay I will give my teacher or cuz to reread for me, and give me his opinion about what I did, by highlighting where I did wrong.

That was how I write my essay, its lots of work and I don’t enjoy doing it, but I have to 

It is important to play your essay writing because it will help you write your essay. It will help give you more ideas on what to write on and where you are going with your writing. If you get stuck on something you just need to use the graph we were given to jot down some main points and work off those to help you get the ball rolling again.

The things I like about writting essays are finding out information on the topics , I love researching ! I like being able to choose what source or even what topic I am going to choose for the essay.I dislike writting the works cited page because its very time consuming!

I find it is very important to plan and gather as much information as possible before I begin to write my essay. I tend to take a long time in putting my essay together once I have gathered information. I re-read over my paper and change the order of how I have presented the information. I find writing an essay to be a challenge for me.

Planning is important because it gives your essay structure. Having structure keeps an essay in proper order, this is needed when writing a formal essay. Planning effectively will help ensure that you maintain a theme or thesis throughout your essay. Backing up your points with examples or reasons will be easier to do so when you have a proper plan to follow, there are certain essay planners that are better for this than others. I would be able to write an essay without planning it out first but the quality would most likely be lacking and it would be disorganized. To me planning is rather important especially for a formal essay. The only thing that I don't like about planning is that it can sometimes limit the length of an essay. This can happen if you follow your plan and when your done you are still a page short, then you have to continue on the fly and the rest won't usually have that proper structure that the rest did.

i like essay writing i find it very easy and it makes the planning easier because you know you have to have an intro about what your writing about and thats already one paragraph down then you have 3 ideas that your writing about in three other paragraphs that already brings you to the end of your essay and then all you have is your conclusion then your done already.essays for me are fasy and easy and i prefer them as long as i like what im writing about.

The way I like to plan for research is to jot notes of direct, short pieces of information. I'm very blunt and to the point so I make my notes as such to work with me. Then after I gather up the notes that seem the most important and elaborate on them and eventually piece everything together to start my essay.

planning for essays is important because if you have a plan it makes things much easier for you. For example having your ideas on a seperate piece of paper and having details about each idea may help you to construct a paragraph. Some people have trouble doing this without that as me I find it much easier planning it and taking things step by step.

Planning? The reason for planning an essay is simple. To make sure you are communicating your ideas to your directed audience to the best of your abilities and free of errors. Though the problem with planning too much is that you overwhelm yourself and panic when it gets close to the due date because you have only done planning and not starting the rough copy of the assignment which does happen a lot to people (including me); though this just happens due to poor time managing plans but it happens to all of us. Now done doing the negitive side of planning which is just very small actually, the positive is just way better and more because with planning you are able to keep on target and focus on where you want to go with your essay rather then jumping around (which is what I do sometimes sadly) and confusing the heck out of your audience.

The planning of your essay is a very important part to figure out to write it and how it will sound. Finding a lot of sources from books, internet or personal opinion is really good because then you can find enough information to complete your essay and you get the right information from the right places.

Researching for your essay and taking down notes is the easiest part of your essay but sometimes you can get so much information that sometimes it is hard to choose what you want to use, the difficult challenges are putting your information in the write place and make sure your essay will make sense at the end. Strategies are to take the interesting information and the important information from notes that you have written down.

Effective planning to essay writing is important do to the fact that it is a tedious task. To write an essay about an important subject you first have to know at least a little about it first and then look for more information about it. Writing an essay needs proper and prociss information or it will be false and then would only be a bunch of lies. Looking for sites and books on the subject is a good place to start it is the main source of information needed for an essay but beware some sites and books are re-writes and falsified so a copywrite claim on the site is a good clue for authentication. Writing down questions on your subject is a good planning step because it gets your feet wet and starts you off slow so it doesn't seem so overwhelming and is a good way of knowing where to start. Webs and other planning graphs also help in the same way of asking questions but specific things about them should be put in these sheets to help branch your thoughts and information out to help set up your essay.

Planning is effective for planning a essay because it helps put everything together. When you don't use a planning sheet you can't go back to make sure you got all the ideas you wanted to achieve on your paper. Having a planning sheets gives you all the ideas you thought of for your paper making it remind you about everything you wanted to put on your paper. Also skipping a planning sheet will make your essay not as strong as it can be because you didn't take time to plan out how you want your essay to be and you can be missing a lot of information that you wanted to get on your paper after you finished. When you make sure you have all your ideas it makes your paper a lot stronger and more understandable

Effective planning is important to essay writing because it allows you to compartmentalize your thoughts. Once you have a visual, it's easier to sort things out by adding to or omitting from the work you have already done. Putting your thought on paper makes the essay writing process faster and easier.

Planning is a very important part of the essay writing process. I am finding Jody’s lesson’s on how to plan for my essay to be very helpful. I am finding that making lists of questions to be a very good way of keeping my research focused and organized. I tend to over research and find that I end up somewhat confused and overwhelmed. By breaking my research down into smaller categories I find that I am focusing on smaller pieces that will eventually all fit together, somewhat like a puzzle. I also think that I have a tendency to initially choose topics that may be too broad and that this approach helps me to narrow my field. Over the weekend I changed my topic to one I feel I will be able to better explain in my essay. Without knowing the knowledge that my audience has on my previous topic I really couldn’t decide where to start and what to focus on. I also thought about how I naturally write and realized that I am most prone to writing narratively which also helped me to decide on my new topic.

I think that the planning charts are a really important and helpful part to essay writing. It really helps me organize all of my thought and plan out the essay. I haven’t really used them in previous classes but now that we’ve used them in this class I see the benefits they have.

Essay planning is useful and an essential part of the labour of essay writing. Is very crucial to remind one of important points that should be covered in an essay, as well as highlighting the final structure of the essay. This is particularly relevant to exam situations where it is all too easy to forget details if one dive straight into an essay without planning it first.

effective planning for writing as essay is very important to me because if i dont do any planning to prep myself to write an eassy you can tell my the end of my good copy because it could be alot better and that i did not put any effort into it. Effective planning is also a good key because then you know what you are going to put down for your intro, 3 body paragraphs and for your conclusion.
