The above is an example of creating an outline for a persuasive article. It is very simple, but it gets the job done.
Now that you have a basic outline, I will show you how to write your persuasive article. Then, I will show you how to format it. Finally, I will show you how to turn in your article.
How to Write a Persuasive Essay
Using Google Docs for writing a persuasive article is a great way to go because it’s completely free and has some really nice tops. I recommend using this method if you have access to a computer and aren’t using a mobile device.
To write your persuasive article, open up Google Docs and create a new document. You can use the template I created below to help you get started. Just copy and paste it into your Google Docs document and fill in the blanks with your own information.
I recommend writing your persuasive article title first. This will help to ensure that you keep with the subject matter and don’t stray off topic too much. In this case, I wrote “ConvertKit + Firebase Cloud Storage. A Winning Combination” for my article title. However, you could write the other way around if you want to start with the introduction.
Next, you will need to start writing your body paragraphs for your persuasive article. Go back to the outline that you made and fill in each paragraph with about one sentence of the outline for each body paragraph. You can use this template again if you want. Just copy it into your document and fill it in with your own information.
Finally, you will need to write a conclusion to round out your persuasive article. Again, we are going back to our outline for this step. The outline will help us to make sure we don’t forget anything important to include in our conclusion. Simply write your conclusion in one sentence per body paragraph from the outline. You should end up with five sentences or less when you are done writing your conclusion. If there is more than five sentences, then you may not have enough evidence to support your claim in your body paragraphs or maybe you focused too much on one part of the argument instead of giving equal attention to all arguments. Many times, this happens when people try to write their article in one sitting without taking time to organize their thoughts beforehand. It’s okay if this happens to you because the rules say that you can revise your article as many times as necessary before turning it in. The most important thing is that you give yourself enough time to plan out what you are going to say before writing it down. This helps prevent you from having any grammar or spelling mistakes in your article because you are likely thinking about what you want to say while typing it out and proofreading it once it’s done rather than trying to do everything at once like most people do without a plan or outline.
Now that we have our article written out, we just need to format it correctly and then turn it in. Let’s look at how to format a persuasive article now.
