WORDS FROM THE WISE
Do not use I, or I feel, or I think, or as I said
Do not say ‘In conclusion,’ or ‘as I have shown or as I have proven’
Do not tell me what is going to be discussed or what the essay is about… just write it!
Don’t feel you HAVE to write your introduction first… PLAN your essay… write your arguments… leave it for a few days… come back… write your Intro/Concl… leave it again… edit… fix…leave it… edit again…have someone else edit…fix… and VOILA! 
Do follow ALL of my instructions and pay attention to the expectations … GOOD LUCK
