An analysis is a writing that looks at part of a document in detail. To write a good analysis, you have to ask yourself questions that focus on how and why the document works as it does. You can start the process by gathering information on the topic of your analysis and defining the questions that your analysis will answer. Once you have outlined your main arguments, look for specific evidence to support them. You can then work on compiling your analysis into a coherent script.

- Carefully review your assignment. Before you start working on your analysis, make sure you have a clear understanding of what to do.  If you are writing an analysis for a class, your instructor probably gave detailed instructions for completing the assignment. If not, don't hesitate to ask them what they expect. Try to find out:
- If your analysis is intended to answer a specific question or focus on a particular aspect of the document you are analyzing.
- If there are any length or formatting requirements for the analysis.
- The quote style that your instructor wants you to use.
- On what criteria your instructor will evaluate your analysis (eg organization, originality, good use of references and quotes or correct spelling and grammar).
- Collect basic information on the topic of your analysis. Most analysis assignments involve disassembling a single document. You may be asked to analyze a text document, such as a book, a poem, an article or a letter. Some analyzes focus on visual or auditory sources, such as a painting, a photograph or a movie. Identify exactly what to analyze and gather basic information, for example: 
- The title of the document (if it has one).
- The name of the document creator. Depending on the type of document you are working with, it can be, for example, the author, artist, director, artist or photographer.
- The form and medium of the document (eg "painting, oil on canvas"
- When and where the document was created.
- The historical and cultural context of the work.
- Make a carefully read the document and note that once you have gathered basic information you can review the document carefully.If your analysis is meant to answer a specific question or address a specific aspect of the document, think about it. Write down your thoughts and impressions. for example, if you are analyzing an ad poster, you may note: 
- Who do you think the intended audience is for the ad.
- Who rhetorical choices the author made to convince the audience of their main points.
- What product is advertised.
- How the poster uses images to make the product look appealing.
- Whether there is any text in the poster, and in so fall h out of it works with the images to reinforce the ad's message.
- What the purpose of the ad is or what its main purpose is.
- Decide which questions you want to answer with your analysis. Analytical writing should have a clear, narrow focus.  It should also answer specific "how" or "why" questions about the document you are analyzing, rather than just summarizing the content. If your assignment does not already ask you to focus on a specific issue or aspect of the document, you must choose one.
- For example, if you "when analyzing an ad poster, you might focus on the question:" How does this poster use colors to symbolize the problem that the product is intended to fix? Does it also use color to represent the beneficial results of using the product? "
- Make a list of your main arguments. After narrowing the focus of your analysis, decide how you plan to answer the relevant ones briefly note your main arguments, which will form the main part of your analysis. 
- For example, you can write, "This poster uses the color red to symbolize pain from headaches. The blue elements in the design represent the liberation from the product. "
- You can further develop the argument by saying," The colors used in the text reinforce the use of colors in the graphic elements on the poster and help the viewer create a direct link between the words and the images. "
- Collect evidence and examples to support your arguments. Simply presenting your arguments is not enough. In order to convince the reader, you must provide supporting evidence.  Most of this evidence should come from the document you are analyzing, although you can also cite contextual information that may provide additional support.

- For example, if you argue that the advertising poster using red to represent pain, you may point out that the headache number is red, while all around them are blue, another proof may be the use of red letters for the words "HEADACHE" and "PAIN" in the text of the poster.
- You can also rely on outside evidence to support your claims, for example, in the country where the advertisement was produced, the red color is often symbolically associated with warnings or danger.
