How to Write an Essay on Any Topic Using AI

As a writer, you know that one of the biggest challenges is getting started. You can stare at a blank screen for hours, trying to come up with something interesting to say, but nothing comes. And even if you do finally manage to start writing, it’s often difficult to keep the flow going and come up with a coherent argument.

This is where AI can help. AI tools like Jasper AI can help you to brainstorm ideas, develop arguments, and even write your essay for you.

So don’t let writer’s block hold you back any longer! Try using AI to help you get started and keep writing until your essay is finished.

In this article, we’ll show you how to use AI to write an essay on any topic.

The Idea of Using AI to Help with Essay Writing

If you’re like most people, the idea of using AI to help with your essay writing probably sounds a bit far-fetched. After all, isn’t AI just for big businesses and tech companies? In fact, AI is becoming more and more accessible, and there are already a number of AI tools that can help you with your writing.

Jasper AI is one such tool. Jasper AI is an artificial intelligence writing assistant that can help you with everything from brainstorming ideas to developing arguments to writing your essay for you.

All you need to do is enter your essay topic into Jasper AI and the tool will generate a list of ideas related to your topic. Once you’ve chosen an idea, Jasper AI will help you to develop an outline for your essay and with a few more clicks, you can have a first draft of your essay ready to go.

How AI Can Be Used to Brainstorm Essay Topics

If you’re stuck for ideas, Jasper AI can help you to brainstorm essay topics related to your chosen subject.

There are different ways to do this based on personal preference. If you’re on Boss Mode, for instance, you could for example write “write 5 essay topic ideas about …” and hit Compose. Jasper will then generate 5 different ideas for you to choose from.

See the example in the image below:

You could also use one of Jasper’s templates to generate topic ideas. I find the Blog Post Topic Ideas template particularly helpful for this. Simply fill in the blanks with your chosen subject and Jasper will generate a list of ideas for you.

How AI Can Help Develop Arguments for Essays

Haven’t we all been there? You have your essay topic and you know what you want to say, but you just can’t seem to put it into words. That’s where Jasper AI can help.

Jasper AI can help you to develop arguments for your essay by suggesting different ways to approach your chosen topic.

Say, for example, you’re writing an essay about the impact of social media on society. Simply fill in the Content description/brief the points you want to be mentioned in your essay and Jasper AI will offer different ways to approach the topic, as well as suggest relevant data and research to support your argument.

How to Use AI to Write an Essay on Any Topic

Now that you know a little bit more about how AI can help with your writing, let’s take a look at how you can use Jasper AI to write an essay on any topic.

I have the Boss Mode plan of Jasper, so, I’ll use that for this example.

First, let’s log into Jasper AI and choose the Boss Mode option.

Boss Mode AI essay writer

Once you’re in Boss Mode, select the Start from scratch option. Both available options are perfect for writing an essay on any topic, but we’ll go with the first option in this example.

start from scratch write essay on any topic

When the Document Editor window opens, all there is left to do is to tell Jasper what to write (command) and then hit Compose.

He’s an example of a command flow that will work for any essay topic:

>write a brief for {TOPIC}

>write essay title ideas

>write an introduction

>write an essay outline

>write about {OUTLINE_ITEM_1}

>write about {OUTLINE_ITEM_2}

>write about {OUTLINE_ITEM_3}

>write an essay conclusion on {OUTLINE_ITEM_1}, {OUTLINE_ITEM_2}, {OUTLINE_ITEM_3}

Our topic here will be ‘mindfulness’.

Our Essay Content Description

In the above command, replace {TOPIC} with the word mindfulness. Now place the cursor at the end of the first command and hit Compose to generate the content description of our chosen essay topic.

Next, copy the auto-generated content description and paste it into ‘Content description/brief’ on your left.

Our Essay Title Ideas

You may now delete everything above our second command and proceed with the second command.

essay title ideas

Here Jasper generated 6 title ideas. I liked the fifth one (10 Simple Ways to Practice Mindfulness Every Day) and will use it for this example.

Our Essay Introduction

The procedure here too remains the same as in the previous two commands. Remember to delete everything above the 3rd command except for the title. (See image below).

Our Essay Outline

You’ve probably noticed by now the pattern that our command follows. Here too, place the cursor at the end of the outline command and hit Compose.

Essay Subtopics

At this point, it’s not even necessary to continue using our commands. Jasper is extremely well trained in recognizing the direction you want your essay to follow.

To demonstrate this fact, simply turn each one of our outlines into subtopics, place the cursor under each, and hit Compose. That’s it!

Essay Conclusion

Here too, you’ll only write the word ‘Conclusion’ as a subtopic, place the cursor under it, and hit Compose.

10 Simple Ways to Practice Mindfulness Every Day

Mindfulness is the practice of maintaining a nonjudgmental state of heightened or complete awareness of one’s thoughts, emotions, and experiences on a moment-to-moment basis. Practicing mindfulness can help you to better manage stress, reduce anxiety and depression, promote wellness, and improve your overall quality of life. You don’t need to set aside hours each day to reap the benefits of mindfulness — even a few minutes of practice can make a difference.

Here are 10 simple ways that you can start practicing mindfulness in your everyday life:

1. Pay attention to your breathing

Your breath is always with you, which makes it an ideal anchor for your mindfulness practice. Whenever you feel yourself becoming tense or sinking into negative thoughts, take a few deep, slow breaths and focus your attention on the sensation of the breath moving in and out of your body.

2. Eat mindfully

The next time you eat, really pay attention to the experience. Notice the colors, smells, flavors, and textures of your food. Chew slowly and savor each bite. Paying attention in this way will help you to appreciate your food more and also prevent you from overeating.

3. Be present in the moment

When you’re talking to someone, really listen to what they’re saying. Put away your phone, make eye contact, and give them your full attention. This will help you to connect with the person more deeply and also prevent you from getting distracted by other thoughts.

4. Take time to relax and de-stress

Make sure to schedule some time each day for activities that help you to relax and de-stress. This could include things like reading, spending time in nature, taking a yoga class, or getting a massage.

5. Practice a yoga or meditation class

Yoga and meditation are both excellent ways to practice mindfulness. There are many different types of yoga and meditation, so you can find a practice that suits your needs and interests.

6. Connect with nature

Spending time in nature can help you to feel more connected to the world around you and can also be a great way to de-stress. Take a walk in the park, go for a hike, or simply sit outside and enjoy the fresh air.

7. Be aware of your thoughts and emotions

Notice the thoughts that are running through your mind, and pay attention to your emotions and how they’re affecting your mood. Don’t judge or criticize yourself — simply observe and accept whatever thoughts and emotions arise.

8. Listen mindfully

The next time you’re listening to music, really pay attention to the experience. Notice the different sounds, instruments, and rhythms. Let the music wash over you and fill your senses.

9. Engage your senses

Throughout the day, take time to really notice the world around you. Pay attention to the sights, sounds, smells, and textures that you encounter. This will help you to become more aware of your surroundings and will also help you to appreciate the beauty of the world around you.

10. Live in the moment

One of the best ways to practice mindfulness is to simply live in the moment. Pay attention to what you’re doing and try not to let your mind wander. This can be challenging at first, but with practice, it will become easier and more natural.


Mindfulness is a simple yet powerful practice that anyone can do. By taking a few minutes each day to focus on your breath, engage your senses, or simply be present in the moment, you can help to reduce stress, improve your mood, and promote overall wellness. Give it a try and see how it feels!

I would also recommend having Grammarly installed to help catch any spelling mistakes that may occur during the writing process.
