tips and tricks, writing

The job of an essayist is to arrange a series of logical ideas into a persuasive argument. This is why great essays take a linear form, providing each idea in an orderly manner so that the reader can appreciate the argument and/or thesis statement.

Every essay should have a structure that is best suited to the thesis statement or main point being put forward. In other words, there are no fixed formulae.
