How to write a kickass essay with ½ the stress
A kickass ppt by wittacism

SLIDE 2:

Find out what your teacher wants

  • get the assignment prompt and break it down into its individual parts
  • this becomes your skeleton for your essay
  • spooky

SLIDE 3:

Don’t start with the introduction paragraph

  • seriously this is a great way of stumping yourself ten minutes into the writing process
  • you’re trying to write an intro for a paper that doesn’t exist yet???
  • start with the first body paragraph

SLIDE 4:

Your awesome body paragraphs

  • the cool thing about the essay is that you pretty much get to tell people what to think
  • don’t hold back
  • your name is already on the top of the page
  • so whatever you say
  • try to really mean it

SLIDE 5:

Conclusion paragraph

  • the conclusion is like the end of a 30 second commercial where they hold the product up at the end just in case you forgot you were watching a Hot Pockets commercial
  • hold up all your arguments for the audience one more time
  • just in case they forgot what they just read

SLIDE 6:

Introduction paragraph

  • now that you have some kickass body paragraphs and a conclusion, rewrite your conclusion in introduce your topic
  • notice how its 300x easier to introduce something AFTER you’ve written it
  • slap a badass thesis statement on the end of your intro

SLIDE 7:

Badass thesis statements

  • remember that skeleton we made in slide 2?
  • get it back out
  • make a single sentence that talks about all those points
  • it’s totally cool to write a sentence that says, “In this essay, I argue that…”
  • then just list those things
  • done

SLIDE 8:

Quotes

  • quotes are a great way to make yourself look credible and to add length to your paper
  • lets be honest, no one actually wants to write 2,000 words
  • you need to talk before and after a quote
  • tell people who you’re quoting
  • tell people why they should care

SLIDE 9:

Citations!

  • fun fact: Microsoft Word’s citation maker is literally the scum of the earth
  • never ever use it
  • use citationmachine.net instead
  • or make your own
  • (it takes about the same amount of time with a lil’ practice)

SLIDE 10:

Done

  • go get yourself a milkshake
  • because you have a rough draft, my friend
  • be proud of yourself

(Note: all text copied word-for-word, with errors intact.)

Ответ получили через двенадцать минут. Все десять присутствовавших при этом человек в напряженном ожидании молчали, когда вдруг заработавший принтер выдал им открытый текст: шифр был взломан. ТРАНСТЕКСТ вскрыл ключ, состоявший из шестидесяти четырех знаков, за десять с небольшим минут, в два миллиона раз быстрее, чем если бы для этого использовался второй по мощности компьютер АНБ.

Тогда бы время, необходимое для дешифровки, составило двадцать лет.
