Writing something you don’t want to write for an audience who doesn’t want to read it. Compulsory. Formulaic. What does the teacher want? What is the minimum I have to do? What is the minimum word length? Playing with margins and fonts to make your paper look longer. Revision=editing. Can I use first person? How many quotes do I need? I’m not a good writer. I hate writing. Can you just tell me what is wrong so I can fix it? How many paragraphs do we need? Plagiarism. Who cares what I have to say about it? What are you looking for? Don’t take risks. Don’t read the comments. Just look at the grade.
