Different people approach the process of writing in different manners. For those who are born with an inherent flair for it, writing is a natural and easy process; but on the other hand, for those who do not possess any in-born liking for it, writing is a very difficult process. However, from personal experience as well as from a review of several kinds of literature on writing, I have understood that the wiring process could be made easy if a person does it systematically after thoughtful planning. In the following few lines, I will explain my process of writing.

The first step I take when I have to write an essay is to think of a thesis that I can write about. I make myself convinced about my thesis and look for and go through relevant material that supports my thesis. Then I consider the counterarguments that may exist on the specific topic and weigh them. Finally, I take note of all the relevant points that I can use to substantiate my arguments in favor of my thesis. Similarly, I make a list of the counterarguments that may exist on the specific issue or subject.
As a second step, I plan how to organize my paper. For this, I prioritize my arguments, rendering them in the form of topic sentences, and decide how to arrange these in the essay. I also decide what data or other evidence should be used to validate each of the topic sentences, then I make a note of the same in the outline. I also note down the counterarguments that may arise against my thesis. I think of points of rebuttal by which I can establish that my thesis outweighs the counter-argument because it enjoys more advantages or benefits. In some cases, I think of suggesting remedial measures to negate the points brought out in the counterarguments. As the final stage of step 2, I make a layout of the conclusion in the outline by a recapitulation of the main points in the topic sentences and a statement of the validity of my thesis as opposed to the counter-arguments.
The third stage is the actual writing process, where I implement my plan into the execution phase. Based on the outline, I do my wiring by using an appropriate style that suits the subject matter. I rethink each point and make minor modifications that were necessary as I write. I also make sure that I am using apt words, phrases, and a tone that complements the topic. Once the writing is over, I set it aside for a while and have a coffee. Once refreshed, I go over the writing once again, closely proofreading the paper and editing it where necessary. I repeat this exercise once more to fix any other issues that I may have missed in the initial reading.
From experience, I have learned that by writing in such a systematic and planned manner, one will be able to produce a cohesive essay that retains clarity. The process of proofreading and editing will help remove any flaws that may exist in the paper and ensure that the essay is error-free. Even a layman who follows this kind of a system, and practices this for a while, can achieve success as a writer.
