Question:

I've written a first draft of my college admittance essay, but it feels jumbled and not cohesive enough. How do I fix it?

Answer:

Try making a reverse outline of your essay. This is a common problem for college admittance essays because of the limited word count, but by notating next to your essay the point behind each paragraph and what the body and conclusion of each paragraph is trying to accomplish, you can eliminate unnecessary information and rearrange your essay so that it makes more sense all together.

Question:

How can I find similarities and differences between different authors, perhaps across time periods or genres?

Answer:

Look at what those authors have in common in writing style, and where they are drawing their influence from. Perhaps they have a similar background, but the time period in which they live gives them a different perspective. When comparing authors or works of literature, it is important to uncover the aim of each work and author, and use what you know about the author to figure out the point of each.

Answer:

Make notes to yourself! Whether it's in the book or on a separate sheet of paper, make a brief outline of the section of the book that you're reading. Remind yourself what the important parts of the story are, and also what recurring themes, tones, and characters may be implying in the text.
