Are you struggling with your essay? Are you running out of time? In this article, there are five tips and techniques you can use to create a passable better essay in a very short space of time. They do not involve cheating, they are simply easy-to-use methods to speed up the writing process, and improve the way you approach your written work.
1 – Do not proofread as you write
When writing an essay, you do not need to stop every time you make a spelling or grammar mistake. You do not have to go right back and fix it straight away. Otherwise, you may find yourself wasting time correcting your work to the point where you forget what you are writing about. Proofreading your work by going back and correcting the spelling and grammar mistakes, is something you can leave until the very end of your essay. Doing so, helps you save time, and helps you avoid stopping and starting as you write each paragraph.
2 – Find other essays and steal their best points
One way to help put a stop to you getting writer’s block, and to help speed up your writing process, you may research and steal points from other people’s essays. You may also steal points and ideas from books, the internet or other people’s blog posts. However, stealing from other people’s essays is often quicker and easier.
You do not need to steal all of their work, just a few points here and there, (just the best bits that you think will help you get good marks for your better essay). Plus, if you steal all of their work, then you are doing a full-essay rewrite, which is not always a good idea. When you steal other people’s points, it is always best copy the source of their point, as it means you don’t have to do the research yourself.
3 – When time is short, use an essay writing service
An essay writing service is a company that you can hire to do your written work that you either do not wish to do, or that you do not have enough time to do. Some students use essay writing services such as xxxxx because they have so much work that they cannot keep up. Essay writing services can do the written work that you find difficult and/or boring. Give the essay writing your essay instructions, and they will do it for you by or before the deadline. The writing service will make writing essays easier, quicker and less of a hassle. Use them, and you will have more time to read the blog posts on Reasons To Giggle.
4 – Write a plan using only bullet points
Planning your essay will lower your chances of getting writer’s block, and helps to keep all of your ideas in one place. The points you are planning to make are literally points on your plan, all you have to do is expand upon them, explain them, and find sources for them (as needed).
When you first start writing your plan, create bullet point plans because bullet point plans are easy to write, especially when compared with larger plans, and you can add them word-for-word into what you are writing. For example, when I wrote the plan for this article, my bullet point for this section was, “Bullet point plans are easy to write.” As you can see, the phrase “Bullet point plans are easy to write” was actually included verbatim in this paragraph.
5 – Bash out a very quick essay for the sake of owning a completed one
When writing a essay, you may find the process very slow and frustrating. Having to write, read, research, and write again and again often feels like a stop-start process that is boring and tiresome. Instead of stopping and starting, consider blasting it out very quickly without stopping to do research and/or check your facts. It may be easier to write it all the way though off the top of your head, so you are not having to stop and reference your sources or the adjust the spelling and grammar. Once you have completed the essay, you will then be able to record the source, reference your facts, and take your time to get the spelling and grammar correct.
