The power of words is easier to understand when one thinks about the human body or the universe. As I make this observation, some might question what words have to do with the human body or the universe. That is, they mean something or they describe some action. From this point, let us take a step further and advance into a new dimension. This is the place where most words originate. It is the human mind. The mind begins in the brain. Let us for a moment think about the mind-brain relationship, and we have an idea of how powerful words can be.Essays are short descriptions of any object, event, or argument. They begin with a topic, an introductory definition, and go on to provide more information on the topic. Essays can be general, imaginative, reflective and argumentative. General, imaginative and reflective essays, as these words suggest are based on general topics, something one dreams about, or those that occupy your thoughts about an event or an experience.Argument essays are those that have to be analyzed by evaluating both sides of the topic. That is, the essay has to present the positives and negatives, the pros and cons, the advantages and the disadvantages. Normally, it takes about half an hour to write a 250-300 words essay. With practice and conversance, it is possible to reduce the duration. The writer has to build up his or her general knowledge so that he or she knows something about everything and everything about something.
