Do you ever find yourself diving into writing without much planning before you start your essay?

I see this A LOT with the students I work with and a few things tend to happen:

– the writing process takes a lot longer
– the writing process is more stressful
– they end up having to cut loads of words that aren’t relevant
– they go off on tangents and don’t answer the question
