I can not write an essay help Watch

    • Thread Starter

    I'm meant to be doing 3 english essays (a mock paper) and a history essay, all due for either tomorrow or tuesday and I can't write it. Physically I can't. Its taken me the best part of 3 hours to get two paragraphs. I don't know what happened. At GCSE I could bang one out no trouble in less than an hour and now, I can only write a paragraph before I'm convinced it isn't good enough and scrunch it up. Has anyone else had this problem? If you have, how do you get rid of it? 3/4 of my subjects (history, politics, english language) are essay based.

    Do you make any sort of essay plan before you start them? I can never write an essay if I just go straight into it.

    Do't scrunch up the stuff you think is bad, hand it in and get feedback. I got an 8 in English Lit and gcse and in my first English essay at AS I got a D, when was writing I knew it was bad but I still handed it in so my teacher could tell me what to do differently.

    Be **** at stuff, because being **** is the first step to getting better. Making mistakes is how you learn.
