    How To Write A Better Paper

    Writing essays is hard. Don't worry; these baby animals have some hints that'll help you out.

    There's no right way to get started.

    Limit distraction aka the internet.

    Take breaks, though.

    Stuck? Change environments.

    When you have a draft, print it out.

    Or — even better — read it aloud.

    Don't ignore your inner editor.

    Enlist the help of a friend.

    Or — better yet — have your friend read your draft out loud to you.

    Deleting something isn't a step backward — it's a step forward.

    Sleep on it.

    Remember, like anything difficult, learning to write takes practice. So try,

    Try,

    Try again.

    Think about how good you'll feel when you turn your best work in.

    High five.
