    Your still thinking whether to write or not? don’t worry just start something, scribble something, before you realize, you might have gotten more than two thousand words.

    Good luck.

    Just keep your eye on the topic always… Here is the trick, get a personal notebook, write alertnigeria on it… Go along with the notebook everywhere you go… While always thinking about the essay, just write what comes into your head about it.. That is what is called ‘critical thinking’. .Just do it and you may be shocked that the world will look for you with this single approach
