The only way to get yourself to get better at something is if you do it in a way that makes it possible. You might not get an A in class, but you’ve already figured out that it’s time to get more serious about it anyway.
This is one thing that we can all agree on. We can also agree that writing essays for others is a lot of work, and therefore we should make the process of writing an essay as effortless as possible.
To write an essay, you can either write a long sentence or start with a simple sentence which leads into a complex sentence. Sometimes you can do both. The goal is to make it so easy that you can do it just by scanning your own writing. As an example, one of my students wrote a long essay on his history and he was successful in this, but he didn’t do this for every paragraph. He did it because it made it so darn easy.
The only way you can write an essay that is more effortless is if it’s not so complex. Like most of the other essays written in the course, this one is filled with a lot of complicated sentences (which I’ve put in bold). Some of the sentences are simple, and some are much more complex. I would say that most students will write an essay that way, but the ones who are really good at it will take a few days to get it right.
The trouble is that the more complex the essay is, the harder it is to read and understand. This is because most of the text is buried in a lot of extraneous words and sentences. Ive found that a good way to get around this is to cut out a lot of words, and then sort them by the level of comprehension they add to the sentence. Some examples of this can be found in the essay, and Ive included a few examples of this in the essay below.
Youll see that this system works pretty well with more common sentences. For example: You are a very good-looking man. You have a very nice body and a good head of hair. And you are very intelligent. These sentences all add up to a very good quality of life for you.
This system also works when it comes to using a very common sentence as a hook. An example of this can be shown in the essay.
While this is an excellent system, it can be frustrating to use it in a sentence. For the example above, the fact that You are a very good-looking man can be used as a hook. However, saying that You are a very intelligent man is a bit of a stretch. We don’t want to be smart. If we’re smart, we’ve got to be a very good-looking man.
Again, I don’t know if this is a good example, but it’s a good example of how sentence building can be confusing. It can sometimes be a bit hard to tell whether a sentence is “hooked” or not.
If you want to use it in a sentence, you can always use it as a hook. In order to get a hook, you have to use it as a hook. However, the hook has to be a hook. If you use it as a hook, then it becomes a hook. You know what I mean? This is one of those sentences where you dont really need to use it as a hook.
