Writing an effective, successful essay is not something that is done in a short window of time. It is something that should be done in several sittings. This essay development process has been divided into three (3) sections with the intention that each part takes place on a different day. Part 1: Plan & write the body paragraphs; put the body together and revise as needed for coherence. Part 2: Plan & write the introduction, the conclusion, and the title; put the essay altogether and revise as needed for voice Part 3: Edit the essay revising grammar and punctuation issues. This 3-part process takes place AFTER the topic has been identified, research has been completed, and the thesis statement has been written.
