Different Types of Essays That Will Help your College Writing Assignments Easier
February 2017

In school, we are taught of the different types of writing style that we follow. With a lot to choose from, these styles have various ways of telling a story from forming a simple narrative to convincing writing styles: these four types of essays will help streamline your thoughts, which make this time pressuring assignment or requirement a lot easier for you.


1. Telling a story through narrative essays This type of writing style is through telling a story and narrating real-life experiences. While this kind of story may sound easy, narrative essays urge the student to exercise their minds by thinking about their personal experiences, then writing about them, thus it is usually written in a first person perspective. When making this type of college essay, essay writers for hire should focus on writing a vivid narration of events, emotions, and other important themes that will help them lead their reader to become engage with their way of wordplay.


2. Painting a picture through descriptive essays Much like narrative essays, descriptive essay is a type of essay where writers showcase their masterful wordplay through descriptions. In simpler terms, college students who use this type of essay writing describe each picture – place, person, things, memories – by means of communicating that goes way beyond describing. The writer’s sentence construction should take its readers to a deeper meaning of communication through their words. Lastly, excellent descriptive essays should touch the reader’s emotions.


3. Stating facts with expository essays Explosive, informative, and unbiased – these are some of the words that best describe expository essays. An expository essay is an informative way of writing that deals with balancing facts about a certain topic. However, they are not – though in the same family – the same with essays such as for cause and effect or comparison and contrast. Expository are informative essays that go beyond simple and even complex comparisons.


4. Convincing tone with persuasive essays Much like expository essays, persuasive essays deal with facts, while at the same time persuasion. By its very definition, the persuasive quality of this type of essay is to cause something using reason and argument. Persuasive essays are complex types of essays that convince its readers to accept their recommendations or personal, yet objective point of views. When writing using this type of easy, college students must build their paragraphs stating facts as to “why” and present a logical premise. Lastly, writers who enjoy this type of essay show be unbiased and must present their facts that are two-sided. However, college students who want to write persuasive essays must be know how to communicate vividly, without mandating their stand about the chosen topic.


Although there are more types of essays to choose from, these essays are excellent ways to pique the interest of your readers and in this case your college professors. Meanwhile, if you need essay help, you can find college essay writing services that are reliable and fast, for a good price.


Tips When Choosing the Proper Topic for Your College Essay
February 2017

There are moments when our professors give us the freedom to write any topic we want, as long as they are related to the subject and course. At first, you get too excited and you start thinking of the easiest topics under the sun, until one day, you are looking at your laptop and open your document, only to find out that there’s not a single paragraph in your chosen topics. As the college student, passing college essays are part of the school experience. We get these types of assignments all the time, and writing an essay is not something new anymore. But what happens when you can’t even think of a nice and interesting topic for your essay? Well, that’s easy! Just determine the style of essay you want to do and after that, you brainstorm.


1. Determining the kind of essay you want to write about Before thinking of starting your essay, always keep in mind that there are a variety of essays available. Determine whether you want to do a comparative analysis of two interrelated topics, argumentative, informal, or other styles. Truly, there are different ways to write an easy, and once you are firm with the direction of your college essay, the next big step is to look for a topic. Determining the kind of essay you want to write about can start from simple and evolve to complex: as you go along with your writing process you tend to be distracted with different styles of writing that your focus may lead you somewhere else. Be sure to determine them before choosing a topic, to ensure an easier yet successful approach when it comes to college essay writing. Aside from that, you can ask for essay help from your professor or instructor or through other essays online to find out whether your topic shows promise, originality, or otherwise.


2. After determining the kind of essay you want to pursue, college students must brainstorm for ideas and topics Your college essay will only take you as far as one page if you do not brainstorm first. It is an important aspect of your writing process that you should not take for granted. Brainstorming starts with choosing a topic and branching out to important and supporting details to strengthen your claim. When doing this, it is advisable to answer the following questions:

  • What’s interesting about this topic?
  • What are the strengths of this topic?
  • What are the weaknesses of this topic?
  • What are the concepts worth mentioning in my essay?
  • What are the problems about this topic?
  • What is the relevance of this topic?
  • Is it original?


Generally, the questions will start piling up as you go along with your brainstorming session. It is prudent to always be guided before starting your essay, as the information you get while brainstorming can potentially become the outline of your essay. Lastly, it is important to note the worthiness of the topic you chose, and ensure that you are actually interested to write about them. If you are then things will become easier for you and in addition, you can input important facts that you believe in and answer the pressing issues with solutions.
