Afterwards, write out the body of your essay which consists of 3-5 paragraphs. In these parts, you should support your position and prove that it is right with the help of appropriate examples, background information or statistics, quotes, etc., but do not insert any personal remarks. Disagreeing with some of the statements is also acceptable as long as you keep to the paper topic and stick to it till the end! The most important thing in persuasive writing is a good structure , so plan everything out beforehand including how to begin an essay , what arguments will be included in each paragraph and how exactly will you form a conclusion . It doesn't matter if your teacher insists on MLA or APA style for academic papers – we can easily edit such parts according to all rules if you have written it following your own ideas. However be careful with such important things as double spacing, font size or margins otherwise all efforts will become useless!
