Plan Your Time

So, you need to write an essay fast. This is a challenging task but not impossible. First, you should do is to plan your time wisely. Make sure you have the time to research, write, and revise your work. It’s absolutely crucial for you to spend the time you have productively, without being distracted by texts, videos, or social media. 

Turn off your phone and find a place where you can focus on writing your paper. The more time you spend on things besides your paper, the worse the result of your work will be. Plan how much time you need to create an outline, research the topic, write, and polish your essay. If you don’t really know what you are going to write about, make sure you plan to spend at least 40% of your time searching for suitable evidence, facts, and data for your essay. The more information you have on hand, the better your understanding of the topic is and the less time you need to spend on outlining your essay. The rest of the time should also be spent wisely – 20% outlining your work, 50% writing, 30% revising and editing.

Create an Outline

Outlines are important when you want to save time. Many students think that this step can be omitted. It’s not that obvious – how can an outline help? However, it definitely can.

When you have an outline that can effectively organize all the key elements of your paper, as well as structure the data that you have and the sources that you need to cite, you spend much less time on editing your work and switching from writing to searching and planning again.

A typical outline for various types of essays can vary, so make sure you have a template for your essay. You can find one in our blog, for example, where we have a lot of examples of typical outlines.

Make sure to create an outline that consists not only of the proper sequence of the elements and paragraphs but also the key elements that every paragraph should consist of. You will also save much time if you create an outline that also consists of all the quotes and citations you would like to include. Make sure you write down the sources of the material you include in your work, as you move forward in your research.

Write Your Introduction Last

The intro part might be one of the toughest things to write due to several reasons. The first one is that it comes first and it’s hard to start with a blank page. The second reason is the nature of the introduction part itself. It should contain a hook sentence – something catchy to start your essay with, your thesis statement, and lots of other information that doesn’t always come easy when you have just begun working on your paper.

So, in order to save your time and avoid wasting time, it’s better to save your introduction part for the last. When you have all of your body paragraphs written, it’s much easier to come up with a good introduction part. It also might apply to writing your conclusion as it might repeat the statements from your introduction.

Use Tools to Check the Grammar

Sometimes you can spend a lot of time revising your paper. Searching for errors in a text is a tedious job and you don’t want to rush in order to avoid pity spelling mistakes. So, this is the step where automated tools can help you a lot. For example, Grammarly or similar apps can make it much easier to check grammar and punctuation. Make sure to use a tool like this and later revise your paper yourself for more effective results. Not every mistake can be tracked by AI, so your eyes are still needed to look through the essay one more time.

I am an only child (and not spoiled, really) who spent twelve years in Catholic schools and seven more off-and-on years in college, but my education largely took place at the Cahuenga Branch of the Los Angeles Public Library. Decades later, not much has changed. I again live in L.A. and I still spend a lot of time at the library — if I had to choose between reading and eating, I’d be dead in a week.
