OK–you have to make people believe that your product does what you say it does, isn’t harmful, and doesn’t have any weapon potential–how do you do that?
I see essay writing as writing. Essay means to convey, to compart. Writing is a concise form of communication and it is addressed to a specific audience. If you know these two you are ready to write.
Type of writing persuasive
Audience, someone who would use or approve your product.
Think of writing as your hand. Look at your open hand.
The palm is the main idea – convince people that your product…describe your product in detail
Each finger is a supporting idea.
Finger I Introduction that you are going to persuade them
Finger II – My product does what it says.
Finger III – It isn’t harmeful
Finger IV – It doesn’t have any weapon potential.
Finger V – Summarize – retell them in other words that you have convinced them .
The joining of the fingers to the hands is the type of writing to be done, in this case, persuasive.
Paragraph I Introduction
You have this product. This product…Now state each finger idea.
Par. II Speak to the idea that your product does what it says it is going to do.
Par. III, IV Do as Par. III, and IV say.
Par. V Summary – tell them that you have convinced them by repeating the ideas in Par. I
NOW, each para. should be support with ideas that touch your audience’s experiences. Relate, relate to them.
Give examples, be concise.
