A lot of people think that an essay is a very easy paper. On the one hand, they are right, because this assignment is quite short and embraces only one major idea. In fact, it is difficult to describe a single concept or problem in a few paragraphs. Inexperienced students do not know how to insert their thoughts into several paragraphs of the written text. In my opinion, this skill is paramount to everyone. If you are good at something, you should be able to say about its foundations in a few sentences. Therefore, an essay is a good exercise to train your communication skills and laconic presentation of your ideas. Of course, we are speaking about a simple 5-paragraph essay now, which contains no more than 400 words. If you need to compose a 1000-word essay, there is another problem. You will need to think a lot to fill the space with something.
Long essays are aimed at the advanced students who possess rich vocabulary and deep background knowledge. If you know a lot, you can analyze your specific problem and describe it in 1000 words. It is very hard to prepare a long essay, especially when your topic is narrow.
