I met lots of difficulties when I was writing my essay. this is the first time to write an english essay, and there are many differences between chinses essay and english essay. so, i do not know how to do a good job.

first of all, the problem is how to arrange time. i am a lazy boy. i began to write essay in the last few days before deadline. i just found my research was not necessary, but there was no time.

Making a good reference is difficult too. when i was in china, i did not know every point need evidence for english essay. so, i did not have any idea to find evidence to support my own views. during the essay's time, making reference makes me crazy, haha. 

i think i have already understood most of the skills to write an english essay. in the next time, i must arrange time well, read more books and do more research.

    It’s honest of you to admit that you left your essay writing to the last minute. That is not a good idea because, as you say, there has to be clear accurate referencing in an academic essay and that takes a lot of time. You also need to check that you have organised your ideas well and if necessary, rewrite your paragraphs. You can’t do that if you only have time to hand in the first draft. Please do not leave it so late next time! If you have the skills to write a good essay then please make sure that you use them and that we can see it and give you credit!
