How to Write a Paper in One Day

In an ideal circumstance, you’d have all the time in the universe to write a great essay, but sadly it doesn’t always work out that way.

There will always be times when you’re required to write an essay disturbingly quickly, whether because of a tight deadline set by a teacher, or because you’ve been so busy that the essay has ended up being put off until the last minute.

However, it is possible to produce a good piece of work even when very pushed for time, and here we will show you how.

Let’s imagine it’s 9 am and your essay is due in first thing tomorrow morning. Here’s a feasible timeline that you can follow:

  • 9:00 – 9:30 – Have your essay question chosen and argument ready
  • 9:30 – 9:45 – Break/ snack
  • 10:00 – 12:00 – Write a full outline/plan of your essay
  • 12:00 – 13:00 – Write your introduction
  • 13:00 – 14:00 – Take a break and grab some lunch (you deserve it)
  • 14:00 – 16:00 – Get back to your desk and do all your research on quotes etc. that will back up your argument
  • 16:00 – 20:30 – Write all of your content (with a dinner break somewhere in the middle)
  • 20:30 – 22:30 – Edit and improve – extremely important step, so take time with this.
  • 22:30 – 23:00 – Print and prepare ready for the morning
  • 23:00 – (morning) – If you’ve not finished by this point, don’t worry – completing in time is still possible. Just make sure you’ve eaten well and have enough energy to last you until the early hours of the morning.
