Rome wasn't built in one day.... but your essay can be! What is an essay? Essay roughly means "to talk."

There are many types of essays...





but ALL essays follow a similar format. One sided argument + emotion "Go green to save the planet!" Convince the reader of your point of view by showing how one side is better than the other.
