My 7-year old cousin wanted to see what “college stuff” was all about, so he sat next to me while I was writing a scholarship essay. It usually takes me HOURS to come up with a couple of halfway decent sentences, but I finished that essay in less than an hour to impress him with my typing speed and ~advanced~ vocabulary. Try it!
My essay coach showed me this web app called Espresso-App. It analyzes your writing and highlights overused verbs, nouns, etc. It can show what your essay is doing well and what it needs to make it unique and fun to read. It is a great tool to use after each draft to fine-tune your essays.Take a look - Use it if you like but it's a great tool
