An essay writer should be familiar with academic and popular literature. In the beginning, you may be confused about what is expected of you, but with a little practice, you will develop an excellent essay. It is also important to avoid procrastination or writing in an unmotivated manner. Papers that are written in a rush will show that the writer lacks responsibility and is not serious about the task.
