And naturally, I’ve gotten better at writing over time.
Imagine that somebody is searching on Google and lands on your page.
You want them to feel fully satisfied with the answer, so that they wouldn’t need to hit the back button and look at other results.
A 2000 word article should take you about 6 to 8 hours.
The reason it takes so long is because you’re not experienced with writing consistently.
I never needed anyone to do my homework for me until I got a part-time job in college.
Good thing I did my research and chose this website to outsource all the essays.Think about it this way: Each article you write will only need to be written once.Once it’s published, it has the potential to drive traffic forever.Last year I interviewed a few of my mature students and one of the things that struck me about how they worked was the length of time they spent on their essays.They recognised that it was unsustainable but I couldn’t really give them any guidance.This study did ask students to estimate how many hours they spent writing their essay (including library research).The actual time spent on essays isn’t really reported, although the median time taken for the four writing strategies discussed is given as between 9 hours (minimal drafting) and 15 hours (detailed drafting), which gives an idea, but doesn’t really tell us the full range of time taken.A number of students seem to reply with a day for reading and a day for writing, which seems about right in my opinion and kind of matches up with the study above.I guess ultimately students should spend as much time as they can on their essays, and this will vary due to outside commitments (and internal commitments to their studies! I do think it’s odd to give an assignment without a clear expectation of time taken though, and many of my students are particularly anxious about their studies and prone to over commit an unsustainable amount of time to their early essays, which can be unproductive (in terms of mark) and could lead to them thinking that they are not cut out for HE.I thought I’d have a quick look at the academic literature.There is, as you’d expect plenty of stuff about essay writing, in particular in the psychology literature (and therefor studies of psychology students! One study of note looked at the essay writing strategies of a cohort of students over their degrees, which appears to note that students stick to whatever strategy (ie how many drafts to do, if any) they start with.
