The appearance of your essay matters, too – and the formatting should not be neglected when you’re in editing mode. This means being consistent with your use of fonts, using italics or underline for emphasis rather than using them interchangeably, ensuring that the spacing between lines is consistent throughout, and other such minor aesthetic points. This may not sound very important, but consistent formatting helps your essay look professional; if you’ve used different fonts or line spacing or anything like that, your essay will look a mess even if what you’ve said in it is good. You could make use of the pre-populated formatting options in your word processor to ensure consistency throughout, with header 1 for the title, header 2 for subheadings and ‘normal text’ for the body of the document.
The conclusion takes up the same level of importance – if not more – as that of the introduction part. The writer will be summarising every point made in the body paragraph in this section. However, it is quite possible for a writer to overdo this section and go along with repeating the thesis statement over and over again. This is one of the primary reasons behind the failure of an exemplification essay. Instead, the writer should focus on a brief summary that helps finish the essay in an eloquent manner. It is imperative that the essay feels complete once the writer is done with the conclusion part.
