Things To Remember Before Writing A Descriptive Essay About Abortion

Picking the topic of abortion as a subject to write about in a descriptive essay is a risky move. Given that a descriptive paper requires a lot of actual descriptions, such topic might scare off a lot of readers. If you’re against abortion and want to show the negative sides of the procedure, this might work, though. Anyway, you’ll need to know how to organize your work and structure your paper.

  1. Do your research.
  2. You should know all the details of this procedure in order to create strong descriptions. It’s advisable to consult your instructor to find reliable sources that will provide you with the necessary information. You may also use the Internet to gather the needed data.

  3. Compose a thesis.
  4. A thesis statement is usually a single sentence when it comes to essays. It should define the purpose of your paper. It’s important to make your thesis clear and to the point, so don’t make it too long. You may create a few draft versions and go to your instructor. They’ll indicate your mistakes and tell what version is the best.

  5. Make an outline.
  6. Outlining is a trick that helps you write a well-structured paper. You should divide your text into three major parts (introduction, body, and conclusion) and plan what you’re going to include in each of them. This will prevent you from forgetting something during the writing process.

  7. Write an introduction.
  8. Start this paragraph with some attention-grabbing sentence. This sentence is called a hook. You may use a fact, quotation, or anecdote. You should then introduce your topic. Put your thesis at the end of the paragraph. This will make a good transition to the body paragraphs.

  9. Write a body.
  10. This section consists of at least 3 paragraphs. Each paragraph is connected to some aspect of the subject of the description. Create images that will make your readers see, feel, hear, and smell the things you’re describing.

  11. Write a conclusion.
  12. Restate your thesis and points. Give a brief explanation that ties them together. Indicate the importance of your essay. Write why you think people should understand what abortion is. Compose a memorable final sentence that makes your text look completed.

  13. Edit your paper.
  14. Take a break after the writing process. Return then to your paper and look through it searching for mistakes and weak spots. Make sure to correct all errors and rewrite irrelevant sentences.

  15. Compose a title.
  16. Use the main keywords from your text.
