KNOW YOUR AUDIENCE!
Don't just start writing. PLAN your essay.
Don't get too wordy.
Replace vague words like things, it, someone, something with specific words.
NEVER use the word "you" in any form in these essays!
No essay should be one long paragraph. Organize your work.
Reread your essay from start to finish before submitting. Nobody's prefect! (see what I did there?)
It's all about the prompt!
