Weird Essay Writing Essentials
We all know that anything out of the ordinary is termed as ‘weird’. So taking the cue from this concept, we can say that in general, ‘weird’ essays are those which are anything but ordinary. They can be anything, even if they are about walking in a graveyard as a childhood hobby. The point here is that children don’t really have walking in the graveyard as a hobby, so in that sense the essay becomes weird.
This website is dedicated to the top weird essays. So we feel that it is our job to bring you to terms with the ‘weirdness’ of an essay.
As it is mentioned above, an essay becomes weird when it portrays anything out of the ordinary, like the given example. Sometimes it is even the title of an essay which brings about the weirdness. It’s all about concentrating on the basic subtleties of an essay if one has to bring about a certain level of weirdness. Normally if one is in the habit of writing an essay only when asked to do so in the school or college examinations, then it is almost never possible that he/she will get the chance of writing one, as in most examinations the topics given don’t provide the necessary background that one needs for writing an excellent ‘weird’ essay. Well, one can always turn around things if one has the ability to do so. But if one is given the topic “Your Hobby as a Child”, and is expected to write a weird essay on that it will need mastery on the thoughts of the writer that he will be able to come up with such a weird hobby to write about. There should be that extra imagination which is a necessity for becoming a good essay writer.
Not always does it depend on the natural gift that many are born with. Often it is the hard work which pays off if one gives it the necessary effort. There are some topics which demand the writers to write weird things. I remember being given one to write about when I was in the fifth standard. It was “Meeting with a Ghost”. Now, of course there were other ordinary topics too but somehow that one caught my attention and I ended up writing about an imaginary encounter with a ‘good and kind-hearted’ ghost. So imagination is an important thing one needs if he/she is expected to write a good ‘weird’ essay. But is it always about imagination and topics? No. There is a certain flow of words which comes naturally to gifted essay writers. Well this is not to say that those who are not gifted can’t write good essays because they don’t have that flow of words. But for them, hard work is an essential requirement as they have to acquire that flow by practising. With practice, the flow comes and once you have it, you can expand on any topic given to you.
Many term the essays on the religious books to be weird. Well, of course they are not so. Essays on the Bhagavad Gita, Quran or the Bible are most often discussions about some of the theories or stories given there. Normal students don’t generally write about them as very few have the knowledge required to be able to write a few words on them. These are mostly scholars who specialise on the subject and thus have the necessary background and the opportunity to write a good one on such topics. But even then these are not weird because it is absolutely normal to write about religious books. Yes, they do become weird under certain circumstances. Suppose one is writing about a few discussions on the Bible, and ends up writing about the theme of Christ being married with Mary Magdalene, which is indeed the topic of the much-talked-about book The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown. Then the essay becomes weird because it is not a normal thing to write about and most people have no knowledge about it. This may be the belief of a few people but the majority of the world population believe otherwise. In this way such an essay becomes weird. But the focus in this example is not on the beliefs of people. It is on the knowledge. Many write discussions on the Bible, but not many have the necessary knowledge to make it weird.
Knowledge is an essential thing in case of any profession. But in case of essay-writing that quality is more in demand. The reason is that not many are specialists in their fields and they are expected to write about a variety of things. In many cases the writer does not get the opportunity to go and do a little research on the topic before sitting down to write on it. In that case, basic general knowledge comes handy. So you see, anyone can write a good ‘weird’ essay if one knows how to write it. It is not a very difficult job after all, though it may sound like one.
