When I write essays, I look at what I'm supposed to be talking about, find a quote that seems relevant, and write a load of pretentious garbage. It's worked for me so far, as far as I can remember, all my coursework in English is grade A, or atleast a C or above. So yeh. The next best thing to that is to actually know what you're talking about.

I know exactly what you mean. English is easy so long as you can bullshit copiously.

Well, this is the thing about English essays, if you do them well, you should only understand the basic jist of what you've written.

Ha! I couldn't agree more. I get amazing grades for my writing, and half the time I barely know what I wrote!

The truth it is.

I once wrote an essay on how teachers expect essays to be and how VERY WRONG they are. That, instead of doing what my assignment was actually supposed to be on.

I got full points. Imagine my expression.

Have you ever had to do an essay using the "Jane Schaffer" paragraph method? It's horrendous! I used to be good at writing essays, I used to enjoy it a little (depending on the subject) but ever since Jane Schaffer came along, our English teachers have been shoving her method at us. It makes everything so bland, and it's all really unnecessary, I think.
