The content itself can also prevent your essay from flowing properly.
Veering off the point is one way students destroy their flow.
A writing error that prevents content from flowing is overly repeating words or phrases.
This is commonly done in the repeating of questions (without answering them) or in repeating the key idea of the topic over and over.
If you do part now and part later, your essay may seem as if more than one person wrote it.
When you’re applying to college, even small decisions can feel high-stakes.
To prevent this type of tone, try to picture yourself as a narrator of a story or a documentary.
When you write, write it as if you were speaking, while at the same time keeping it formal.
Repeating words can be unnecessary at times, so learn to tell the difference.
Words such as ‘won’t’, ‘it’s’, and ‘you’re’ may seem to make your essay flow better, but teachers have an aversion to them because of their improper use in academic essays.
