... and I suppose it depends on what you're writing it on... but I personally would churn out a first draft so you've at least got something to hand in if you don't get anything else done because stuff comes up. Then go back and improve what you've written as much as you can for tomorrow
Step 1. Disconnect your router (Unless your essay involves relevant points that can be found on the internet).
Step 2. Turn off your phone.
Step 3. Get all your books that you need and sit down in a quite place with no distractions. I sit at the kitchen table.
Step 4. Have some brain food and hydrate with water! This is a key part! Brain food consists of things like bananas, porridge, etc.
Step 5. Get cracking!

It took you 2 hours to write 1 page. You started the thread 13 hours ago, so your essay is due in 11 hours. It will take you another 18 hours to write the rest of the essay at the current rate.
There's only one thing for it: increase the font size.
