Even the shortest, most insignificant moment can make a great essay if it shaped you in some way.
Giving this step the necessary hours now will pay off later.
Narrow your list of potential topics to your top one to three choices. If you’re having a hard time, try writing in different environments—coffee shops, your room, or a library, for example—and alternate between topics, and remember that at least at this stage, more words is better than fewer; there will be a step to polish your writing later.
By day 14, you should have written one rough essay for every “top choice” topic you decided on during day 5.
This means that you should now have anywhere between one to three potential essays for a single prompt.
