We all know how to write essays because there’s no concrete algorithm of achieving final goal, because even final goals of this genre differ and vary. Each one is unique though not all of them are worth time and attention. Essay is a brief variant to get to know something new in a little time period, because they are usually shorter than any other prose works. Nowadays essay is divided into types, genres and subgenres, what demonstrates the evolution and popularity of it. Indeed, it is very popular among printed literature, internet and blogs. It is kind of a blog, because written in the free form and usually by using common language. BUT it is literature genre still, what means there are rules to follow even when it seems that everything is allowed to put inside. You write it for someone to read and here are some tips not to kill the desire of reading to soon.
1. Save your time and their time. It’s a pity we don’t live in the century of longread lovers anymore. People sometimes aren’t ready to dedicate time to classic literature, what to add…
2. Do not abuse unknown “smart” words. Your intellect, if you want everybody to know about one’s presence, can be seen through simply expressions, what is much harder to do, but it works. Simplicity attracts people, because they feel like talking to the author on topic and ready to pay their time for it. Slang is another extreme too, so to find the balance is the best.
3. Choose some burning question or the theme which makes you burn. There are more chances people will read about something that worries society now, these days of survival, so use it. If you find your past more exciting you can find the parallel between these two timelines. Or talk about chosen object with the passion which will touch everybody who could only meet your work. Sincere interest is always palpable and it infects masses on some special level.
4. Be honest, be open. People love to feel welcomed into someone’s mind, they are always curious how things look like there. This is a very important and decisive factor.
