A process essay is a written document describing how to do something.  A process essay should give step-by-step instructions that outline how to preform a task, project, or other process. One of the keys to writing a process essay is to choose a topic that is simple to describe and break it into steps. A process essay includes an introduction, body, and conclusion sections. The introduction section needs to catch the reader's attention by highlighting the importance of the process and why it is important. The body of the essay details the steps in the process in a logical order with enough detail that the reader would be able to replicate the process. The body should also describe any alternate ways that the process could be completed. The conclusion of the essay reveals the final results of the process.
