    All I am doing is for each section im doing 3 to 5 main paragraphs (depending on the question) and in each paragraph signpost it in relation to what the question is (eg "Firstly, the author presents injustice.."). Then I would embed quotes when you write them, so it flows when you read it, then talk about what the quote generally means, on a literal level. After this, point out some language terminology if you can (eg: cacophonic alliteration, metaphor etc). Talk about why the writer has chosen this. Do some word level analysis, chose some words in the quote and explain what they mean, what connotations they have, impact on the reader/audience and maybe link it to the author's purpose if you can. Also, link to context for section b, and then after explaining the context link it back in to the quote. Once all of that is done, link back to the question and signpost your next paragraph
    Make sure you have an introduction and conclusion and multiple interpretations of quotes, if you can.
    Hope this helped and good luck!!
