Tips for writing university application essays

Doing the same thing in the same way creates a pattern that helps a reader follow along. 

On this page I've used a parallel structure for the tips. Each one is written as a command. I used the imperative mood (the command) because these tips are vital parts of writing. I used it in each case  because that creates a pattern your brain picked up by the time you reached Writing Tip #3. 

If I had changed Writing Tip #8 to "Details are important," your brain would have registered the shift in structure and for a moment would have flickered away from what I want you to do: 

keep reading, 
accept these tips, 
use them, 
become a stronger writer, 
sell lots of books,

Referencing:  Remember to choose either Harvard or Vancouver versions of referencing and to use the same version while citing within the text and in the bibliography. Reference all citations in their correct format including web-pages and reports. A  great tutorial about citing the work of others and referencing is from the University of Nottingham  'Referencing your work with Harvard' , and also please look at the Pdf document on ' Harvard referencing '  which is information on how to use references as supplied by  Manchester Metropolitan University.

As I said before, straight to the point novels with little description and smaller words are not bad novels. They can be very good novels. But wanting every novel to be written like that smacks of something the fast food generation wants, something called instant gratification. They want results now, they want their food now. Sometimes I wonder if there is a correlation to the fast food generation to people wanting their novels always simple and straight to the point. To say that novels should only be written one way, which this article seems to be saying, is a disservice to literature and it’s many diverse writers. I ask you all to think it over.
