Today we’ll talk about when you should start timed IELTS writing practice, and how to include this into your study plan.

Many students are so worried about the two essays they have to write on the IELTS exam, that they actually write too often.

You can write every day, just not IELTS essays!

Over-preparation is a killer. If you try to write too many essays, you will lose motivation, for one thing.

You will come to associate negative feelings, sometimes dread, with IELTS writing. This will carry over into test day and become amplified, worsening anxiety and test performance.

As noted earlier, there are other ways of developing writing ability besides essay practice. Journaling is a fantastic way to increase writing fluency and confidence.
