    The best way to plan an answer (in my opinion) is to do a spider diagram as opposed to bullet points. Then, slowly expand your spider diagram by linking your ideas. This will certainly work in the creative writing section.

    When you get the sources, split the source up into 5 with a pencil and ruler. Highlight all the key info. For the creative writing I would advise you to use some previous ideas from the sources as one of the sources should be a story or from a text of some kind.
