CSE 2022: Plan/ Strategy/ Daily Routine

This is an everything thread for all stuff 2022. You can post your daily goals, end-of-the-day updates, weekly targets or any weird thing you use to measure your progress. You can put into words & post the soul-sucking sadness that is threatening to devour you & your productivity. You can write what made your day & let others experience the happiness too, at least vicariously. This is a thread to pick each other up. This is a thread to keep each other accountable. This is a no-judgement zone.

--------

“This is one more piece of advice I have for you: don't get impatient. Even if things are so tangled up you can't do anything, don't get desperate or blow a fuse and start yanking on one particular thread before it's ready to come undone. You have to realize it's going to be a long process and that you'll work on things slowly, one at a time.”

— Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood

Does writing essay for upsc means only describing the essay or we can dig for new meaning, or give contradictory view to essay . 

Got poor marks in essay mocks for doing that ,the copy cheker have written not relavant/stick to demand of essay type comment every where. 


I don't know what I have done wrong 

1) Made the essay unnecessary complex.

2) I lack langauge(articulation)skills to convince the reader to my narrative. 

3 ) The reader,reading the essay is searching for some fixed format or trying to earn more money by giving only a cursory reading .


Essay score 130 in 2016,Essay 135 in 2017(I thought these marks were due to my handwriting illegible at times,spelling and grammar error ) 

Essay 103 in 2018(wrote a one sided essay showing contemt for indian  culture in customary morality topic).


Writing mains after 2 year drops and 1 csat negligence. 

Anybody with good essay marks or improvement over time please reply .
