Definition essay

Definition essay question:

I need help writing a definition essay. I don't know where to start.


First, find your topic for the essay. This is usually the biggest problem for a writer. It may help to go to our "Get Organized" section and try some freewriting as a brainstorming technique.

We also give some "step-by-step" instructions on those pages on getting the essay written. If you have the time, a great book about good writing, that may be in your school library, is Great Paragraphs by Keith S. Folse.

Good luck with the assignment.
