Are you fed up with getting feedback on your essays that says, “your writing is too descriptive” or “not enough critical writing and analysis” or “you wasted too many words on describing”?
Critical writing and thinking can be confusing, and writing in this style can feel completely alien. But staying safe with descriptive writing is holding you back and preventing you achieving those higher essay grades. Certain essay questions require critical thinking so if you’re not engaging in it you’re losing out on a lot of marks.
In this episode, I demystify the process of critical writing. You’ll learn the differences between descriptive writing and critical writing and I’ll walk you through six example essay questions to help you understand HOW to be more critical in your essays.
Your future grades will thank you for listening to this one.
