How not to write an essay

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.
