Being short on time might be the best way to trigger and get those creative juices flowing. Just like how fear affects the human mind.
Whatever the reason may be for you being short on time for writing your essay, we have all been in the situation. Many a time.
Funnily enough, the deadline is somehow always met! I guess this has to do with the fear aspect of things.
Lucky for you, we have some tricks up our sleeves that will get you writing an essay no matter how much time you have on your hands. So, let’s get right into it!
Knowing the topic
Since time is of the essence, we imagine you don’t have a lot to thoroughly research the designated topic?
No worries. What you need to do is educate yourself about the topic as quickly as possible. You can do this by reading a summary that other people have written about the topic, or just watch a quick youtube video!
Perfect. Now, you are somewhat knowledgeable about the topic you have to write about.
Scour for sources
For academic essays, and papers you will need to have some sources on hand for your essay to be complete and to validate your arguments. You cannot base the entire essay solely on your point of view, that too without valid sources.
This is very simple to do! Search for the Wikipedia page of your essay topic, and then scroll down till the end where you will see a dense bibliography.
Click on a couple of links and find some quotations that will be most relevant for your essay.
Now you have some credible sources to back your reasoning and argument!
Draft an outline
This part is really important, believe it or not. Since you don’t have a lot of time on your hands, it is even more important for you to be organized so you don’t lose more of it.
And an outline will help you do that.
In your outline, you simply have to pencil in the thoughts that are floating around in your head. They don’t need to be coherent, but enough for you to understand what you are trying to say.
Once you have laid your thoughts out in a semi-structured way, you can continue to the most awaited part.
Writing the essay
Until now, you should not have spent more than 1.5- 2 hours doing the drafting and quick research. The writing part won’t take you a lot of time because you have everything you need to be quick and efficient. You can also consult a paper writer service that can help speed things up!
When writing the essay, simply just write and don’t look back. Don’t worry about polishing and editing things, you will get to that later too.
Right now, all you need to focus on is to write out your ideas from your outline in a more elaborate way. You don’t have to think about the choice of words, just be as simple as you can as long as you are conveying your message.
