This is useful advice for YouTubers, too.
I was thinking the same thing. I haven't needed to write an essay is years, but I write video scripts all the time.

1. I thought I had accidentally sped up this video. 2. If you plan and write your video transcript, I would love the uploaded version so that I don’t have to pause and keep returning to your video to write down your very useful point(s). 3. You have a new subscriber. 4. Such helpful tips. I have a 4000 word essay due in 3 days so I’m grateful for your knowledge. Very reassuring to hear that complicated vocabulary actually reduces the mark!

I'm in the 9th grade and I have to write a 3-4 page paper on Premature Births. I've already figured out my thesis and my outline so I'm a day ahead of my class but I'm unsure of if I should continue or wait until the rest of the class catches up.
Le Ciné Du Geek (1 year ago)
My problem is that I don't speak english very well and I end up picking up Ideas from different sources. It stay relevant and are usually well marked but I'm not proud of that. I would like to express the ideas as I understand them but when I do it I check the spelling/grammar/formating every 5 minutes on google. I really need help right now. Btw english is my 3rd language.

there was one semester in college when i had a 12 page paper, a 5 page paper, and then another 8 page paper all due around finals week. after i got through that, i never struggled with papers ever again. this is coming from someone who chose to study a hard science all because of essay-phobia 😂 one tip i picked up over the years: after (and while) you do your research, just start dumping all your disparate ideas down onto a blank doc, even if they're disjointed and not in actual sentences. don't even bullet point or organize, just dump. and then build your thesis around the ideas you've put down. i found this approach a lot more helpful to structuring my papers than the classic build an outline by coming up with a thesis and then listing a bunch of facts that support it. it also made my papers sound way more organic and not as stiff and obviously formulaic.

Erómeon (1 year ago)
I recommend a previous step to research: Try to write your essay first without sources. It allows you to clear your thoughts, detect biases, find what info you lack, what sources you will need, allow you to be really original and be less anxious about the quality or have a writer's drought.
tehila (2 months ago)
Good idea
RajaMCool (9 months ago)
Yes! I used to worry about not having sources to support my ideas, which used to slow down the writing process.
Bethgael (10 months ago)
Yes. Write down what you know/think you know as a first draft, then check the research to see how on the ball you are.
