@Jeror,
Get organized. Outlines are extremely valuable. You should also leave yourself enough time. A rush job is unlikely to be great. Do your research and read what you need to read.

On the creative side - make it as much of a story as you can - without causing issues with facts and getting whatever point you need to get across. Essays can come across boring - you can make yours stand out by making them more interesting - a story will draw someone's attention in more than just writing down facts and supporting opinions.

But you need to have the structure and all the details required of the essay. Make sure you cover everything that is required of you in that essay (check the boxes if you need to). That will get you the good grade (assuming you are being grading) - getting you the great grade would be to also make it stand out. This works well also for things like college application essays.

@Jeror,
A key point I tell people is to think about the end goal. What is the point you are trying to make? Any writing that is not making that point is distracting the reader. Another is to remember your audience. You write differently for people who are experts than you do for the general public.

@engineer,
I strongly agree with Linkat. Ive found a point of view of the story helps in the creativity and keeping the work readable. Think about presenting the story from a point of view of, perhaps, an object in the story. Ive read a neat essay about the White House presented from the point of view of one of the rooms within it. Anything in biology , of course , can be presented from the POV of the organisms involved BUT, everyone would expect that, so e change the story to be told from the point of view of a small segment of geography where these organisms lived.

WHATS your subject,? Is it an issue, an event, or an object. Then think about a POV and you may find it helps streamline your writing.

The Phila Inquirer recently presented a series of essays on the changes in labor/management relations in our history by using a famous incident where many Irish immigrant laborers were brutally treated and were worked to death and were buried in an area called "Duffy's Cut". The Duffys Cut area was followed through the 1800's and into the 20th century. The last descriptive scene was a train going by duffys Cut and overlooking nwly identified graves of the brutalized workers.

Try to write like Elmore LEonard and not Bulwar Lytton.

@Linkat,
So some slime can sell a pre-written paper.
