It has been twenty years since I studied literature. The Open University’s text books for AA100 are very simple to follow and I definitely feel like I have a good grasp of basic essay writing.
My current method at approaching an assignment is to read, make notes, re-read, make more notes, panic, re-read and all before I even consider writing something that resembles a coherent argument. It’s not great but it will improve with practice.
In less than 24 hours TMA06 is due and I have yet to start it. My notes are haphazard and non-specific. At least I have read the course material once or twice.
