The 19 Steps Of Writing A Paper
If you started your paper when it was first assigned instead of the night before it was due, it wouldn't have to be like this.
Step 1: Open Microsoft Word.
Step 2: Write your name, the date, and the class at the top.
Step 3: Think about how to start your paper.
Step 4: Take a quick break.
Step 5: Start your paper.
Step 6: Take another quick break.
Step 7: Start your paper but for real this time.
Step 8: Use Wikipedia as a source even though your teacher specifically said not to.
Step 9: Write a couple pages of garbage.
Step 10: Freak out when you realize the paper actually has to have, like, 10 pages or something.
Step 11: Try making the margins smaller.
Step 12: Or the font bigger.
Step 13: Realize your teacher will notice both of those things and just add some extra spaces before and after the title.
Step 14: Use synonyms to restate things you already wrote so you can make your paragraphs longer.
Step 15: Remember you haven't double-spaced yet, so it's actually going to be long enough.
Step 16: Do the bibliography in MLA format or APA format or whatever to prove to your teacher you didn't use Wikipedia.
Step 19: Promise yourself you'll never wait until the night before to start writing a paper ever again, and then rest.
