Illustration in a Nutshell
When you write using an illustrative style, you’re using examples to make a point. These examples must be strong, relevant, and clear. The examples must make sense to your reader, and you must avoid confusing the reader by just listing examples without taking the time to explain the importance of each of them. Organization is very important in an illustration essay, and you may use one of these techniques to organize your essay: listing in chronological order, listing in order of importance, or listing from the simple to the complex.
