What Should I Know To Write My Essay Like A Pro

So, you want to write like a professional, eh? I mean- anyone can create a bad essay and many can create a good essay, but you need to go head and shoulders above the rest if you want to write a really fantastic one!

So how do I do it?

Firstly, let’s remind ourselves of what makes a good paper; for there is no point in us getting ahead of ourselves.

A good paper sticks to the rules! When it comes to what’s expected of the content or the required format and details over annotating references, for instance, it is vital that you get it all right! Make sure you know of the guidelines and expectations for your particular course of study, follow them accordingly, and you can’t go wrong.

What else?

Any good paper needs to be researched well. If you want to write like a professional, then you won’t overlook how crucial research is- regardless of your subject. Indeed, to go the extra mile, you will try to locate as many sources, opinions and facts as you can. If you can find that one piece of information that isn’t always found on the essay treadmill, you’ll stick out from the crowd. Think outside the box: perhaps you could interview somebody in the field, for instance.

You’ve got to have style!

The writing style itself is what will really put you ahead. As with anything, the more you do it, the better you will be. So spend some time honing your writing style, paying attention to every small detail. Have you used the correct vocabulary? Have you gone off on a tangent? How does it flow?

The better your paper flows, the richer the vocabulary used, and the more you have an absolute understanding of your subject matter, the more you’ll be in the ballpark of being a pro!

Be unique.

Originality always helps. Be sure to stick to required rules, but the more thought provoking and unique you can be about your subject matter, the more interesting it will be.


A professional won’t give up until their work has been read and reread and scrutinized until every last word and thought has been analyzed! You need to be a good editor as well as a good writer. One tip that can help is: when you’ve finished the first final draft, reread it through the eyes of someone else. Imagine you are your teacher, for instance, reading it. If you can take yourself out of the picture at this stage and be even more objective than usual, you’ll soon notice things you had overlooked before. Polish and polish until it’s just right!
