I'm very bad at writing essays. I'm always having trouble with keeping the structure of an essay right, just bouncing back and forth between different topics.
How can i learn to write better essays? I don't like writing essays, how could i learn to like it, as it would propably also make it easier to write one?

A little additional information - don't be too worried about the essay. It's pretty formulaic and you really just need to keep yourself out of the bottom 20% of scorers (less than 4.0)...

I'm probably going to sound really weird, but I love writing essays. I have one that I'm writing at the moment and it's 2100 words already. Anyway, I just take breaks in between and write whatever comes to mind. I end up getting so sucked in and writing so much that I don't even realize that I do. Music helps me, so maybe listen to music? Cut out all things that are distracting you and don't go back to them until you've finished.
