What to Consider in Writing In most cases, students will only perceive an essay as something where they can tell a story. This is somehow true only if you are going to write a narrative essay. But in general, there is a specific essay structure that you need to follow and it only involves at least three major parts. Also, you must be able to integrate a good thesis statement that will start all the discussions of the paper. After you have realized the thesis statement, it is about time to make sure that you have a direction in writing. Identify your main goal or purpose and select the theme that you want. For example, you can write an argumentative essay or a classification essay.
