We’ve got our outline. We’re ready to start writing.
Writing the Essay – The First Draft
First, take a look at your outline to see where you should begin. Ideally, your intro paragraph(s. will tie in with the last sentence of your conclusion. This creates a nice flow for your paper, and it helps you keep your message clear. If you don’t have anything to connect your introduction and conclusion, just begin with a general statement about the topic you’re discussing before diving into the details.
Once you have an idea of where you want to start, use note cards to write down everything you want to include in your article. If you have a lot of information to include, break your note cards into sections based on the structure of your outline. If there’s information that you don’t need in your paper, leave it out — or use it for a future assignment! You can always edit your draft later if it turns out you need more information than you originally thought.
Once you have all of your information written down on note cards or in a word document, arrange them in the order you want to write them. Use the outline as a guide for how and when to introduce each point. Finally, go through each note card and write a rough first draft of what this section should say. Be sure to proofread carefully as you go — there’s nothing worse than spending hours writing a paper only to find an error in the second paragraph!
Let’s look at our example once again:
Dropbox? (Introduction #2)
Now we’re ready to start writing our first draft. Remember, don’t get caught up in perfecting grammar or spelling at this point — just focus on getting your main points across. When you’re finished, take a break from writing. At this point, your brain is probably tired from thinking about your article, and it’s time for a short break. Take a walk outside or go for a run around the block. Clear your mind for a few minutes, and then come back to the computer refreshed. With fresh eyes, you will be able to easily spot errors or places where you could clarify your thoughts further. Go through your rough draft one last time before moving on to the next step — editing!
