Every essay is connected to a unique set of words as follows: —
For example, just like “describe” is connected to descriptive essay.
When you are asked to describe about your favorite day or describe about your favorite job or something like that, then you can understand that it is the descriptive essay.
“Explain” word is connected to informative essay.
For example, when you are we are asked to write about – explain your favorite book, or explain your favorite sports, then you can understand from the prompt and the title that you have to write an informative essay, about about your favorite book, or about your favorite sports.
Similarly, the word “convince” is connected to persuasive essay.

Choosing and Following the Prompt
Once you understand the prompt, by examining the title of your essay, then your next task is to choose a best approach to research using the internet writing.
Before you start writing, you must consider the word limit inside your mind, because you have to search the relevant material on the Internet, depending upon the word limit of your essay.
If you are asked to write an essay of less than Thousand Words, then you can simply search for the topic directly on Google.
Google is the best search engine for doing any Research, and you must used it for your research.
I am suggesting you to use Google because it is the best site and it has the greatest database, and don’t use a any other search engine, because Google has best algorithms that can provide you the best search results.
For example, suppose that you have asked about writing on – “Does social media create an isolation?”
Then, you can simply search for the keyword title plus essay, i.e. “does social media create isolation” plus essay, as show in the figure below: —
Keep in your mind that you have to choose the essay, that you can easily rewrite in your own words, and don’t just copy paste, because it should be plagiarism, and plagiarism is strictly prohibited, by most of the Universities.
So, this is the search results for this particular keyword.
You can also add an essay in the search, for particular keyword and don’t go with the only the first result.
Visit at least more than 3 to 4 links in the search result, and choose the essay, that is easy to read and rewrite in your own words.
Just take some common ideas from the essay, and then write it in your own words.
This approach is best suitable for essays that have thousand or less words. However, if you are willing to write an essay of more than 1000 words, then you can follow the approach provided in the next slide.
If you are asked to write about more than thousand words, then you have to try some more search terms, that can help you get some more insights about the topic.
In that case, you can use the search term – “title plus PDF” i.e., “Does social media create isolation” plus PDF in the search, as shown in the figure below: —
There are many government and educational websites, that upload a whole research paper on the websites in the form of a PDF file, that you can easily search with this search term.
As you can see on this search results that there are many PDF files available for the essay that you are looking to write.
You must visit at least 2 to 3 search results and choose the best suitable PDF file for writing your essay.
If you are a management student, then you can also search the database of our website, from the search box provide at the upper right corner.
There are more than hundreds of research papers, available on various management topics on this website.
Make a Rough Draft
Make a rough draft!
Before you finally start research using the internet writing for essay, you must make a rough draft of your essay.
You can can choose the below format to write a simple essay.
So, this is the format for writing a simple essay.
Once you search the internet for the topic, then write 1 to 2 paragraphs in introduction section, and try the use your own words.
Your introduction should tell the reader, about the issues and main thesis augment of the essay.
Here you can explain the main issue and write paragraphs, depending upon the word limit of your essay.
Try to keep the sentences short.
Because, when you write very long sentences you can make some grammatical and typo errors in the long sentences.
So, try to make the sentence as short as possible.
So that the readers can love to read that essay.
In the body part 2, you can put some examples and justification, and write one or two paragraphs to explain the importance of the title of the essay.
This is the general format that you can use for writing about the 500 to 1500 words essay.
You can increase the paragraphs in the main body part and then in the introduction and conclusion, depending upon the size of your essay.
Remember that this is only rough view of your essay, and you have to use your mind and reasoning for different topics.
Use the second search term, i.e., title + PDF, while searching for writing more than Thousand Words essay.
Use this sample rough draft, to make a rough draft for your essay, and mention the different topics, after deleting the bullet points.
For example, you can write an essay on does social media creates isolation, by putting forward some issues like “Social media is the best way to stay connected with childhood friend, however, excess use of it can create isolation.”
Then, you can proceed with this issue, in the body parts, and explain the main issue in your body part 1, and make some counter arguments in the body part 2.
You can put some evidence in your body part from the recent news like “Recently a girl went into depression, with the over exposure of social media.”
And provide your arguments and counter arguments about this new and issue.
You can put your own thoughts and reasoning that the girl went into depression, with the over exposure.
Then write, what are the implications of this kind of issue.
Finally, we can write a conclusion, like by mentioning the main points of your essay, while putting a positive note, like social media is not bad, but parents have to keep an eye on the children while they use it.
