How to create original essays in a few hours
Deciding what to write about
The first thing that you need to with any essay - no matter how short the time limit may be that you have to create it - is to think of a topic or theme to write about. Of course, if you have a strict time limit, then using a predetermined topic will be a great deal easier; however, you may not have this luxury.
If you do need to think of a topic before you can start writing, then it is important that you take some time to do this. It may be tempting to use the first idea that comes to mind; however, this could prove to be very detrimental in the end and, rather than saving you time, it could take more time and effort to write about the topic.
The best thing to do is to take some time to try to think of as many ideas as possible. Note the ideas down and use the list as a basis to come up with your final idea. Quickly consider any pros and cons of writing about each idea, so as to eliminate any that may be too time-consuming or ineffective. Ultimately, you want an idea that you can write about in a limited time, but one which will also be interesting and enable you to do well.
Preparation is the key to success
As with most things, preparation is the key to success. When you are limited by time, a strict plan enables you to get on and do the work, knowing what to do and when. Just as it is worth taking some time to think of good topic, it is also worth taking time to prepare and plan your essay writing. By using a logical and well thought out plan, you can help minimise the risk of leaving something out as well as ensuring that the work is completed as fully and successfully as possible.
Research relevant information
As important as research may be, when you are pressed for time, it is vital that you ensure that any research that you carry out is relevant. If pressed for time, skim through and make a quick decision on how relevant something is to your work – if it appears that it may be useful, then keep reading; however, if it seems unconnected to your work, then it may be best to move on to the next piece of research. Equally, take as many notes as possible, but don’t waste time on small details if unnecessary.
Ultimately, you want your work to be as in-depth and relevant as possible, but you may not necessarily have the luxury of time to read as much as you otherwise might if you had several days or weeks write the work.
