• Strive for at least five sentences in each paragraph.

• Your essay must be titled.

• There must be an overall thematic cohesion to the essay.

• Finish your essay with a concluding paragraph.

• Write sentences in a positive form. He came late is far more direct than he was not on time.

• It is better to express a negative in a positive form. Dishonest as opposed to not honest. Forgot as opposed to did not rememember.

• Omit needless words. When you complete your first draft, go through it carefully, looking for unnecessary words, sentences, and paragraphs. Be ruthless with your editing.

• Avoid cliches and conversational usage unless you’re using them to make a point.

• A series of two or more sentences with two independent clauses joined by a conjunction can easily become tedious. Avoid at all cost. He ran and ran, but she kept up with him. Then it started to rain heavily, so they looked for shelter. He put his coat over her shoulders, but she remained cool.

• Remember, whatever form your paper takes, it should not fall into order by chance. Order should be a result of careful planning.

• Solid paragraphs: Give unity to the paragraph by making each sentence contribute to the central thought.
