One suggestion that helps quite a bit is once you get the assignment for the rest of the day, just put away and do not think about. Do everything else they would normally do throughout your day but leave that be. When the next day arrives, take it out and take a look at the first section of your assignment. This can be anything from instructions on how to proceed to simply a list of topics that you can choose from. If it is a list of topics that you can choose from then choose the one that most interests you and stick to it as your first choice is normally your best. This will allow you to begin research and writing on something that interests you and as such will make the entire process feel a little easier.
This is a very important aspect of how to write essays. Lets say you have 2000 words to write for the whole essay and 5 main points, with 2 subpoints for each. Remember that you will also need an introductory and concluding paragraph, so that makes it about 12 paragraphs in total. This means you will need to write about 150-200 words per paragraph or sub point. Once you start to break it down in this way, you can see that learning how to write essays is not overwhelming - all you have to do is write a short piece of text for each of the ideas you are presenting.
Look at what you have read for each of the main points of your essay and work out how you can talk about it in your own words, or in a more informative way. Look at your essay research notes and decide for yourself if the writers have made claims which, in your opinion, lack substance. If necessary, compare different claims and write down which of them is more valid, in your opinion, and explain why to your reader. Remember that each paragraph needs to lead into the next. This smooths out the structure and helps the essay to flow better.
