Question:

How can someone improve their writing style?

Answer:

The simple answer is: keep writing! Every writer develops a writing style as they pen more works, even if they do not know it at first. Writing styles can also change -- growing with the person. This is all good and normal. If a change in writing style is desired, one may consider reading widely to find a style they might try to emulate. Having another person read their writing and critique it also helps to trim out bad habits that may not positively contribute to one's style. Because every writer is unique, every writing style is unique, and beautiful in its own right.

Question:

How can I find more meaning in complicated literary texts?

Answer:

There are many ways to delve deeper into a difficult text. One way is by annotation. Highlighting, circling, and writing all over a text often helps clarify things for a reader. A person can circle confusing words to look up, underline important points, highlight interesting facts, and writing questions they have in the margins. After annotating, it is important to go back and try and answer the questions: looking up words in the dictionary, re-reading confusing passages, and discovering answers for questions written in the margins earlier. Comparing texts to other texts that are more understandable, looking for a thesis to understand the writer's argument, and looking for symbols in the writing are also great ways to being to unpack a complicated piece of literary.

Question:

How can someone enhance their introduction in a college essay?

Answer:

A strong introduction always has a good "hook," or first sentence, to lead the reader into the topic. A hook can be a question, a story, a powerful or jarring sentence, and sometimes a quote. After the hook, there should be a few sentences introducing the general topic, while connecting it to the hook. A good way to think of these sentences is like a triangle balancing on its point: general (the wide top of the triangle) transitioning to specific (the point of the triangle). Lastly, your thesis, the last sentence of your introduction, tells the reader your argument, acting as a road map for the rest of your paper.
