When you get to know these tricks of the trade, these simple and even small steps, you will have different tools to tackle your essay writing.

Quotes can be seriously helpful

When you know your topic and your thesis statement inside out, look for a relevant and strong quotation. This helps in the composition of your essay because it shows you have read widely, used the opinion of someone with a strong reputation in the field in which you are writing, and breaks up the flow of your own writing.

Close the door on your way out

In writing the conclusion to your essay, make sure that it is the finale, that it rounds off all what you have proposed beforehand. In particular, make the last sentence clearly indicative of the end of your piece. It is a logical conclusion. Using these different tools and ideas will help you compose a much better essay.
