Glob some joint compound in and around the gap , apply paper joint tape over gap going about an inch past each side of gap , hold one edge and wipe tight , hold other edge and wipe tight , let dry , skim joint compound over tape , sand and skim again with joint compound , let dry , sand and touch up paint...With setting type joint compound it can be done in one day...Good luck....
