WRITE AN A+ ESSAY: IT’S EASIER THAN YOU MIGHT THINK.

I’m going to make a confession. I was a straight-A student in high school. I graduated summa cum laude from college. My senior thesis won the institution’s coveted essay-writing prize. Not thanks to raw brilliance, or dazzling talent.

No, I knew how to write essays. You see, great essays aren’t necessarily written by the “best and brightest.” They’re written by students who know the rules—from concept to thesis statement, from outline to final draft. Students who know how to get the best possible grade for the least amount of work.

I’ll show you how you can, too.

A STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE TO CONQUERING YOUR NEXT ESSAY ASSIGNMENT
My name is Jenny Sawyer. Over the past five years, I’ve been the girl behind 60second Recap®. I’ve invested thousands of hours helping teens understand classic literature. I’ve answered countless emails seeking help with essay assignments. I’ve guided individual students, one-on-one, through the process of crafting thesis statements and writing essays, testing and refining the techniques I used when I was in school. Strategies I employed to nail essay after essay.

Most people think A+ essays require hours of hard work. Or genius. I’d always had a hunch they’d thought wrong. Now, I’m certain of it:

YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE A GENIUS TO WRITE AN A+ ESSAY
I’ve read mediocre essays from brilliant students. Great essays from ordinary students. What sets those A+ essay-writing students apart?

They know how to analyze the assignment to keep themselves on track.

I’ll show you how you can, too.

YOU DON’T NEED LONG HOURS TO WRITE AN A+ ESSAY
The best essays rarely take the most time. In fact, some nearly write themselves.

How?

With the right kind of preparation: A+ essay-writing students organize their research and cut their workload by as much as half.

I’ll show you how you can, too.

FORMULAS ARE NEVER THE ANSWER, BUT…
A+ essays are never formulaic. But they have a lot in commont.

A+ essays start strong with crisp, provocative thesis statements.

A+ essays support those thesis statements with well-chosen examples and tightly-reasoned arguments—the hallmarks of persuasive writing.

A+ essays finish strong, with conclusions that locked the reader into agreement with the essay’s thesis.

A+ essays are written by students working from a simple framework: the five-paragraph essay format.
I’ll show you how you can, too.

DON’T BE INTIMIDATED: IT’S A HEAD GAME, YOU KNOW
Ready to supercharge your essay-writing process? You can when you “think like a prosecutor.” I’ll show you how. I’ll also reveal the courtroom “trick” you can use to save yourself time and trouble while you craft a great thesis statement. You’ll see how you can use the strategies of a criminal trial to speed you through each step of the essay-writing process, from the organization of your research, to the writing of your thesis statement, to the polish of your final draft.

It’s the first time I’ve ever set this strategy to paper. Now it’s all here for you, just a click away.

TRANSCRIPT
Hi there. I am John Bond from Riverwinds Consulting and this is Publishing Defined.

Today I have 13 tips for writing a great academic article or paper.

First, let us start before any writing has occurred. Think about whether the effort is justified. Is the topic new and novel in the field? Is the article about a particularly timely topic in your area? Don’t just write an article because you can; rather look to make a difference.

Second, think about where you want to submit the manuscript. Be a loyal reader of any journal you intend to submit to; do not just pick one out of an online search. Know the mission of the publication. This will allow you to focus your writing on that journal.

Third, follow the instruction or guidelines for authors for that journal very closely, particularly in regard to length and format.

Now, let us look at mechanics. The fourth tip is to follow closely the appropriate style manual. Whether the AMA, APA, Chicago style guides, or others, you will benefit by understanding these guidelines in your field.

Fifth, short and concise is always better. This applies to the entire manuscript but also to sentence length and paragraph length as well. No one ever said, “I wish that paper was longer.” Ruthlessly delete all extraneous materials.

Sixth, follow accepted practices in regard to grammar and style. If you do not know the expected practices find someone that does. Also, read the articles in the journals you are submitting to so you can understand the tone of these articles.

Now, let us look at the content presentation. Seventh, when the paper is written, review the abstract very, very closely. Many people will read only the abstract and it needs to be flawless. Make sure it conforms to the abstract format in your intended publication.

Eight, consider the article title very carefully. Avoid a boring title which is really just a label. Consider something thought provoking or maybe even provocative, but do not stray so far that it is corny or sensational.

Ninth, make sure any tables, charts, images, or graphics are essential and created in a quality fashion. Does each item standalone by itself?

Lastly, let us consider the review of the manuscript before submission. My tenth tip is to read the final manuscript aloud several times. This helps for clarity and language.

Eleventh, aside from having the content reviewed by your peers before submission, have others outside your field read the paper as well. Listen closely to any suggestions they have.

Twelfth, avoid any hint of plagiarism. Always cite your sources. Never take any passage or ideas from others. An error here can affect your career or reputation.

Finally, I know many people that watch these videos are non-English language speakers that may be submitting to an English language journal. If so, I suggest having a native English language colleague or speaker read and help craft the paper before submission. This will likely increase the quality of the final product and therefore increase the likelihood of acceptance. If you do not know anyone to help with this, there are many editorial services that will now assist for a fee. Or email me for suggestions of editors that can help with this.

At the end of the day, there is no secret to success. Attention to detail and a careful review of the language will hopefully improve your work.
