Essays are supposed to give enough information and featured facts. They’re supposed to tell the facts with coherence without deleting a logical and unique form.
If you’re commissioned to write a composition and/or article or a story for a publication, you need to be serious as of this matter. Editors wouldn’t like writers who cannot submit on a deadline. They abhor irresponsible essay writer who are just for a show and making promises, although not submitting on time.
In the Philippines, I’ve caused respectable editors like Melba Bartolome of Women’s, Dinah Ventura of Tribune, Nancy Reyes – Lumen of Cook, Reynaldo Duque of Liwayway, Danilo Meneses of Dandelion, Mona Gonzalez, Ricky Lo of Philippine Star, Eugene Asis of Peoples, Leoncio Castillo of Buy and Sell, Dave Frias of Wealthline International, and June Ranera of Rogate Ergo, and others; and I thank all of them (forever and ever), for teaching me the guidelines of good writing.
It was not easy. It required plenty of patience to write something the editor will publish conforming to the needs of the paper, magazine, or book.
How exactly to Write the Essays Quickly
The writer needs facts. Primary and secondary data may be used for more details. If necessary, a first-hand interview and witnessing of an event would help. The additional information one gets, the better. Moreover, the writer has to be sharp to identify what details to add and what to omit. It’s not just getting something to write. There must be some insight and/or added knowledge from the new work.
Write clear sentences. Remember the KISS theory of composition (Keep it simple, stupid.)
Organize data as to theme of the paper or magazine, or audience.
You’ve got to place your soul and heart into your work.
Be ready to rewrite.
A Stock of Subject Matter
The essay/article writer needs an inventory of subject matter. In a nutshell, he or she has to be well-read. His/Her senses must certanly be keen and free about the reality of life. Francis Bacon once said, that he took mankind as his field of study; Montaigne and Whitman made usage of their lives as the main topic of their work. Authenticity and freshness are markers of a good essay.
Theodore Cheney said that a highly effective essay/article writer needs the skill of the storyteller and the investigation ability of the reporter.
