If You Really Have Only One Night to Write an Essay

Well. OK. First of all…


But no. All right…

A lot of people do this. A LOT.

And basically you have three choices.

  1. You could head for the hills

(tempting, I know).

OR 2. you could play it tough

Go in tomorrow and front up to your teacher (who has put a lot more effort into your education than you’ve ever dreamt)

and to all the other kids who have panicked and sweated over this essay. 


You could look them in the eye and tell them you haven’t done it and say whatchagonnadoaboutit?

(‘Insouciant’ is one word for this attitude. Rude and stupid are others, but, hey, that’s just me.)

OR 3. You could do the brave thing.

You could follow the ten-step program below and see if you can pull it off.

Come o-o-o-on. Come oorrrrn …    


Give it a try. Just start with the first step. The first step is really easy…

Start here.
