F. Polishing your essay _ After going through the steps above, you now have in your hands a working draft of your essay. Definitely, however, it is not yet in its best form. At this point, some sections may sound illogical or incongruous with the rest. The entire essay may not be as coherent as you wish it to be, or it may be plagued by too many paragraphs containing three or four sentences. Do not be disheartened, for this is the time that you enter the next phase and begin polishing your essay.
Using a single basic theme is one method you can employ to guarantee your essay's coherence and effectiveness. It forces you to organize your thoughts and ideas and helps keep the essay focused. Without a theme, your essay will simply look like a haphazard collection of facts thrown together to impress the reader. With a main theme, the essay will have a focal point upon which you will develop the rest of the paragraphs.
