Hi! I'm in y13 studying English Lit and I would suggest identifying the point you want to make in each paragraph and sticking to that topic. Ie find a quote to support your point, pick a few words you can analyse and try to link this analysis to context or critical theories so that it flows smoothly and doesn't feel awkward to read. You avoid waffling and jumping to ideas that don't link using this approach too. Hope this helps!

No probem I break down each novel/ play into different sections: characters, themes, section summaries, critical theories, contexts and key quotes. I use flashcards to condense this key info but use whatever works for you - you could try posters, organising notes from class or anything else you can think of. If you have any other questions I'm happy to help.
