So far I haven't been very productive with essay writing.

I did spend 3 hours of solid work in the library on monday, but it felt horrible (no cups of tea, no comfy seat - I got told off for putting my feet on a chair! - and plus got a horrible headache for not taking a break), and all I managed to do was read one book. I had originally intended to stay until 5pm at least, but I caved and came home early instead and wrote about 100 words.

Today I didn't bother trying with the library; I've got all the books I need for one of my essays here anyway. I did about 200 words today, but I also spent most of my time going through the most recent feedback on my essays, narrowing down on what my weakest writing points are. And then I went through the essays I'm writing and who will be marking them, and I've started to analyse my markers own writing style. I figure if anything's going to teach me how to write an essay that will get a good mark, it should be the marker's own style. *crosses fingers & touches wood*

Was going to pull an all-nighter, but I'm so wiped from trying to think in essay-style that I think it'll work better if I go to bed early & get up early tomorrow. I've been having trouble getting up in the morning again the past week or so - think that's down to easter hol mentality, but I'm planning on kicking that bad habit away again.

Anyway, so I'm feeling a bit more in control of my essays now. I have a plan of action. Now I just need to do the actual writing part. I've got 1,200 done on this third essay, and if I remember correctly the other two essays are only missing 1000 words each, so it'll be tough going, but I should have stuff under control. Maybe.
