Do not be afraid to start writing an essay. Take your time with the ideas that you want to imply in your piece of writing. Have your ideas first in your head without putting them down on the paper. When you feel like writing them down, take notes on every idea, word and phrase that comes to your head and relates to the topic of your essay.
Brainstorming Once you have a firm essay title and are clear what it means, you can have a brainstorming session to come up with as made ideas as you can which relate to your essay title. If you have a lot of ideas, the next stage is to narrow them down to the most important and most relevant points.
