Another proof about how great being a writer comes from the big Islam leader, stated that “If you are not a prince or a great leader, you should be a writer” (Imam Al-Ghazali).

Talking about writing, one of the kinds of writing product is an Essay. What is Essay?. Based on The Oxford Dictionary, essay is such a kind of short piece writing on one subject. It can put more consentration on what the writers want to write only in a current case they want to be focused on. Wikipedia stated that essay is generally long pieces of writing written from an author’s personal point of view. Essay can consist of a number of elements, including literary, criticism, political manifestos, learned arguments, observations of daily life, recollections, and reflections of the author. An essay has been defined in a variety of ways such like a prose composition with a focused subject of discussion or a long systematic discourse. Making an essay means that the writers are forced to have a good ability in expanding the idea and making the writing can be understood well and even more interesting writing by the readers. Knowing that writing an essay is not as easy as its sound, there are some difficulties that usally make the writers completely confused to start making it. They might own those problems to start writing, if the writers do not enrich their knowledge, it may take a little long time for them to think more how to make it to be perfect and easier for readers to read it. Evenmore they can stop to write when they face the difficulty and they have nothing on their mind to poure out into writing. Stuck out is the worst result for writers when they already come in this phase at last. It can be considered that they have already given up to continue writing. That is why, many opinions declare and believed that “The more knowledge the writer has, the more interesting writing he can produce.”
As mentioned before, there are two basically problems that can cause the writer confused to start writing. The first problem that many writers are really burdened in writing skills is when they have to expand the idea. Getting the topic of an essay is an easy thing, but expanding the idea of its into long sentence and long explanation is such a kind of a huge sword kills an iron for them. How can it happen?. It can be truly occurred if some factors in order to improve writing skill are not owned by them. Having more understanding of words formations, words concord (agreement), upgrading the vocabularies and grammar structure are some steps should be passed by them to produce a qualified and scientific essay. The writers are demanded to know when they have to use the right word, the right structure, and also the right spelling of words in their writing. Finding out what we are passionate about, finding platform to share the passion, and keep writing and repeating are also included into the sub steps. Invariably, the writers shift topics and lose focus within their paragraphs because they do not know how to develop or expand their idea. They only concern into one focus that is how the paragraph can be filled by some long sentences, indeed a paragraph should be at least half a page long, but usually no more than one page. How, then, if the writers do not have enough arguments or statements to say. Instead of broadening the focus, which will only be another form of topic shifting. Those problems can be solved by illustrating the idea with examples, giving an authoritative quotation, anticipating and responding to counterarguments, and brainstorming more insight about the idea.
The other problems in writing an essay is finding the scientific words. It is good for most writers to use some general vocabularies in their writing, but it can be more precious thing if they can choose and analyze what is the most suitable word that can be taken as the chosen symbol of writing itself. Another way to keep the writers stay in their purpose of writing is looking up the expected words into the current dictionary and they should be also passionately in reading more information that connected with the topic being written. For the writers who want to own a good and qualified writing, they should be creative and inovative thinker. Creative to manage the words formation, words concord (agreement), and even more about grammar and structure that is used in their writing. This step is the most difficult part that will be faced by the writers, because this difficulty can cause them to get frustrated and stop writing if they cannot manage the term of writing itself.
Another step to find the scientific words is being innovative, it can be translated by giving some proverbs or one’s quotes that can support the means and the purpose of essay that is being written. In this case, the writer is also able to add some suggestions or comments to support, explain, and manage the words about the one’s quotes that have been stated to be the opinion. It can be some count of proofs that the writers need to affirm and convince the thesis statements of theirs that have been mentioned before.
Using proverbs is also one of the way that the writers can maximalize their writing into the best one that they have already expected. The writers can play around with the proverb that they have used as one of the proof of their writing by adding and expanding opinion and changing the word formation to make it clearer and easy to be understood by the readers. The writers can choose and analyze the most influence proverb that support the thesis statements in every single purpose of paragraph that is being written. They are also demanded to improve their skill in managing word into a whole good sentence arrangements of essay. If they are able to do all these terms, it is a certainty that they can be called as a good writer because they can make a writing is able to connect people across time, space and culture. The demand of writing itself can be totally delivered that individuals can learn something from yesterday, gain knowledge about today and create some plans for tomorrow. All writers might find many difficulties in writing essays or other kinds of writing, such as journals, dissertations, even publish writings into blog or websites. So, this matter should be realized that doing everything must get the risk, either big or small problems. A science writing should be written in a clear and concise style, its paragraphs should be well organized.
According to the whole expalanation the writer has already explained above, it can be concluded that the ability in writing is such an essential part in learning the language. Eventhough there should be many difficulties found, it is deeply considered as the risk of writing itself. But for somebody loves studying, he will do everything to increase his ability to make his writing can be more precious and scientific as well. He can do research, survey, and some other methods to strengthen his thesis statements in order to make the writing can be accounted for its fact. The most important way to make a qualified essay is not only talking about having many vocabularies and grammar textbooks, but for those who want to master it deeply should pay more attention and get more understanding in expanding idea to produced a good writing. They also should be able to search and find the scientific words to support their writing to be more scientific and make the readers are satisfied in reading it. The most beginner writers do not think about how to adequately develop their idea, they usually know that the paragraph needs to be longer, but they do not know how to expand their idea to fill that length. Some steps that can be done are illustrating the idea with examples, giving an authoritative quotations, anticipating and responding to the counterarguments, having more evidence about the idea, offering another’s perspective to the idea and elaborating on causes, effects, definitions, comparison and the contrast can be the alternative to enrich and expanding a qualified sentence in an essay the writers want.
