  • I thought I was good at writing essays all through freshman and sophomore year of high school but then in my junior year I got this awful teacher (I doubt you’re reading this, but screw you Mr. Murphy) He made us write research papers or literature analysis essays that were like 15 pages long. It was ridiculous. Anyway, I found HelpWriting.net and since then I’ve been ordering term papers from this one writer. His stuff is amazing and he always finishes it super quickly. Good luck with your order!

  8. 8. Format of a Cause-Effect Essay Block Pattern of organization All the causes (or effects) are discussed first, either in one or several paragraphs, as a block, before moving to the next block, which discusses all the effects (or all the causes). Sometimes the major sections are separated by a short paragraph known as a transition paragraph. This paragraph concludes the previous section and leads readers to the next section. It is not necessary to include a transition paragraph for every cause- effect essay. It is useful to write one when your essay is long where there are several paragraphs dealing with the effects.

  18. 18. Child Abuse Yesterday, I read an article about a boy who was abused by his own mother. The visual showed he had scars everywhere and even cigarette burns on his arms. His thighs were black and blue. It is really sad that this is happening in our society. Why does this happen? Maybe, the boy’s mom is stressed with life. She is channelling her frustration on her son. Different people deal with stress differently. I can’t imagine my mom hitting me even though she must have been stressed looking after me and my five siblings. Whatever it is, I don’t think a child should ever be beaten black and blue for whatever reason. A child is just a child. Even a very naughty one. There are serious physical, psychological and social repercussions when a child is abused.
