What’s Your Question? On the importance of focus

The focus of your essay is really important. Even if you get an essay question from your tutor, you usually still can make some decisions about what you specifically want to focus on. Find something that you want to find out more about. This will mean that you are interested in the subject and it will probably be more fun to research!
If you don’t know enough about the subject yet to know what will interest you, start ‘collecting’ – read around the subject and listen to the connections you make in your head, the questions you have, the things you are curious about. These will be excellent starting points in figuring out your question!
