  22. Narrow your topic, to one main point you want to get across. Don't have to broad a topic.

Write three paragraphs supporting your point. Let each paragraph be about a different point, that supports your main point. Write a closing paragraph that drives your main point home. Read over your final essay, making sure it sounds the way you want. Make sure it makes a strong case for your main point. Check that all words are spelled correctly, and that you have correct punctuation.
