The Easy Essay ℗
Where was this when I was in school?
The Easy Essay is the 2+2=4 of writing. Just as 2+2=4 works at all levels of mathematics, the patented and free Easy Essay Process works at all levels of expository/proof writing and appears to eventually help the logical thought process itself. The Easy Essay is being used by children who can write a simple sentence and is being taught as a college class. This process is useful in TBI, ADHD, Sp Ed and dyslexia through and beyond the SAT and GED exams. It can be learned in 5 minutes by following simple prompts and can be later used or taught without a computer. The program is effective in any language (see translator) and is limited only by the capacity of the user. Post graduate students are using it to organize their master's thesis' and a doctor is using it as a template for organizing the chapters in a book on new medical procedures, as the program can expand from the basic five paragraph essay to a 17 paragraph essay (e.g. the skeletal aspects of a chapter). Doctors ask their patients to use it and can then give better service, in less time and the patient doesn’t forget anything. The patient simply enters the thesis, “I need to see the doctor.” and then follows the prompted process. Businesses use it for quick, organized memos, reports (e.g. “Mr. Smith needs to rewire his kitchen.”), and more. Businesses often ask for a one page summary. US Presidents have done this. If the concept is acceptable, then more can be asked for. If not, the reader has not wasted their time. The program is perfect for both sides of this equation. Thusly, The Easy Essay is helpful for virtually anyone who desires to better organize their written or verbal communications.
A SIDE EFFECT OF THE EASY ESSAY IS THAT USERS APPEAR TO BEGIN TO COMMUNICATE MORE LOGICALLY, AND AUTOMATICALLY WITH CONTINUED USE, THEREBY MAKING IT USEFUL NOT JUST IN EDUCATION AND BUSINESS, BUT IN LIFE.

How to Outline a Term Paper
The dreaded term paper. If you haven't written one you will. They are favored by teachers and feared by students at all levels of academia. But writing a good term paper is quite possible if you plan ahead, and follow some important steps. Once you learn the steps you can use them for many writing tasks you will encounter once you leave the classroom and enter the boardroom.
• Easy Essay Writing Website
• Purdue University Writing Lab
[They list just two references and eHow is a huge site. The Easy Essay is in good company, as they list us before Purdue and in The 100 Top Tools for Writing the Best Admissions or Scholarship Essays they list our program above Stanford. We are probably the only site that is also used in Sp Ed.]
>> An Interview with The Easy Essay's Designer Barry Morse <<
The American journalist Gene Fowler once remarked,
“Writing is easy. All you do is stare at a blank sheet of paper until drops of blood form on your forehead.”
Make no mistake, though – Fowler was totally lying, and writing is really hard. So let’s enlist the help of our robot overlords in order to make it a little easier.
Today I’ll share 15 apps and websites that might help you become a better writer. Some are huge, multi-faceted programs, while others are more single-purpose and can help with organizing research, planning, gaining motivation, or editing.
If you’d like even more resources to help with other aspects of your education, you’ll find even more websites, apps, and tools over at the Resources page.
If you’re unable to see the video above, you can view it on YouTube.
- Coggle – a free mind-mapping tool that can help you organize ideas.
- Storyline Creator – a mapping tool that’s built around individual characters and the flow of events in a story.
- Evernote – my second brain. Pretty much everything I write starts out as a note here. Here’s another article I wrote with additional Evernote tips.
- Scrivener – a full-fledged application for writing a novel. This is what I finished writing 10 Steps to Earning Awesome Gradeswith.
- Novlr – a new alternative to Scrivener. It seems like it has a nicer design, but fewer features. I found some recommendations for it on the NaNoWriMo forums.
- Byword – a minimalist Markdown editor for OS X. You don’t need to know Markdown to use it… but Markdown is really easy to learn.
- Twinword Writer – a tool with a built-in thesaurus that suggests alternative words when you pause in your writing.
- Write or Die – an app that will punish you if you don’t keep writing. Punishments can range from annoying noises to “Kamikaze Mode”, which starts erasing your writing!
- Written? Kitten! – a more positive take on the Write or Die concept; instead of punishing you, it rewards you with pictures of kittens every 100 words.
- 750words – the name describes it pretty well; this is a site that can help you build a daily writing habit. It’s got pretty cool stat-tracking as well.
- DailyPage – a site that gives you a different writing prompt (e.g. Write about your favorite leader) every day.
- Mendeley – I’m not a grad student, but I’d use this if I was. It’s a free tool that can help you manage research documents and PDFs.
- editMinion – a tool that can analyze your writing and pick out weak and over-used words. It can also tell you if your sentences are too short or long.
- Coffitivity – plays coffee shop noises to give you a nice working atmosphere – a good alternative to white noise generators.
- Brain.fm – a web app that uses AI to generate music that’s supposed to help you increase your focus and attention. The site even has research to back up their claims. I’ve tested it a few times, and while I’m not sure if the music is truly working or just providing a placebo effect yet, I will way that it’s pretty darn good music for working.
By the way, if Brain.fm’s style of music isn’t for you, then you might enjoy my Ultimate Study Music Playlist on YouTube. I add new songs to it often.
Lastly, if you haven’t heard it, you might enjoy the CIG podcast episode where I break down how I wrote my 27,000 word book.
