This leads me to lose focus in some areas of the paper, because instead of planning correctly I just force them in the essays, which makes it lose the significance of the organization of the paper. Also, I have never spent long periods of time making sure my papers are close to perfect, and doing that would most likely would increase my scores even further. The reason I wait last minute is because writing under pressure tends to get the juices and ideas running through my head and my fingers wont stop. Whenever I try to start a paper early I usually end up starring at the paper or computer screen for hours and nothing gets completed. I do aim to try and get all my information to put it in an outline, which would probably make my life a lot
