You need to maintain a clear perspective, a calm look at what is happening and not get hung up on what you need to do. Tell yourself clearly that you “can” do it, and think about it until you are done. It is necessary to reduce the burden for the mind. Stay calm and realize that you are not writing a novel. All jobs in college, and most jobs in school, are done at double intervals, so the number of pages needed should be divided into two. This is the amount of work you have to do, so it should look less intimidating.
Go to the library right away. If all libraries are closed, go online and use Google Scholar as with all online databases, you need to log in. Do basic research. But, since you have little time, then quickly run through the material and drag everything you can during a quick view. Protect yourself from all distractions. It doesn’t matter whether you are in the library or stuck at your desk at home, remove everything that can distract you. Remove players, phones, your to-do list, TV, radio, games, and so on. Disconnect and the Internet only if you do not use it for work. “Feed” your brain. To maintain energy and enthusiasm for work, keep healthy snacks on hand. Choose foods that are high in protein, such as peanut butter and soy, and high in complex carbohydrates, such as vegetables and fruits. Do not lean on sugar and caffeine in the end you may feel even worse than before eating. Take breaks. Every hour, get up and stretch for 2-3 minutes. Walk around the room, jump, let your blood run. So you can better focus on the robot than if you just sat and wrote 5 hours in a row.
Take the job as an exam. You write under the pressure no drafts, no second chance, you have to write it. Imagine that you are writing a test, and this will help you to concentrate fully on your work. Think big. Focus on the main points you have to write. For example, if your work is based on a Shakespeare play, get some idea of the main characters of Romeo and Juliet, what are their main features and motives. You do not have time for subtleties and nuances. However, be careful when transferring your broad thoughts to paper. Write only what you are sure that it will not be so obvious your work, quote his or her statements, and then describe in detail how you agree or disagree with this very expert. This is a part of any work, but given the limited time, because you need to hurry and write at least two good reasons why this expert’s opinion is true or not. Then focus on what you write was interesting. Even better, what you wrote is taken from the original version of the expert opinion. Sometimes the eccentric the better (but you need to be a good writer to make it sound beautiful).
