If you are able to get into a bit of a routine with your essay writing, then you will find it becomes a lot easier. The professional essay writing services encourage their writers to have a system when they write so that they never suffer with writers block. Here are a few steps that you can integrate into whatever system you use.
Start your essay the same day you receive it
Physiologically it makes completing it on time a lot easier. Your subconscious considers it an unfinished task if you start it, whereas it considers it “just more work” if you leave it for a few days.
Read your essay questions repeatedly
Read through your questions at least twice before you start your research, and go back and keep reading them as you research until you have committed them to memory.
Brainstorm your own ideas
When you are given your assignment you will probably have lots of your own ideas that you wish to add. Get them down as fast as you can.
Research a little to get a grip of your theme and topic
Do not start writing right away. Do a little preliminary research just to be sure there are no big surprises heading your way.
Plan your essay
Plan a skeleton structure that you put into modules. The biggest and most obvious modules are instruction, thesis, conclusion, etc. But, you can also split up the task further whereby you may then plan your essay in sections.
Write your essay in a modular fashion
Nail one theme, topic or piece of research and nail it well before moving on to the next. Do not write through your essay as if you are writing an email to a friend.
Write micro conclusions
After each paragraph, you should write a micro conclusion. It is just a conclusion for that paragraph and only needs to be a line or two.
Put your essay together
If you have written in a modular fashion, you should have lots of sections with each section detailing a theme, or a piece of research and such. Now, put it all together so that it flows and so it is evenly weighted. You can arrange your modules/sections to guarantee this.
Collect your micro conclusions together
Remove them all and put them on one document. Here you have a guide to the perfect conclusion where you are certain not to miss out any important points. You can probably use a lot of what you have written in your actual main conclusion.
Check your work for flow and balance
Your work may have to bounce from one idea to another and one theme to another, but try to give it some semblance of order and logic when you put it together.
Proofread your work twice
Do it before you check the work for flow and balance and then do it again after. A lot of people suggest going back to your work after a few days because you will be able to view it with fresh eyes. This sort of thing is up to you, but students rarely have such long deadlines that they can afford to leave their work for a few days before checking again.
