My english teacher is a pretty unusual guy. We were recently assigned to read a fairly unconventional commencement speech. Then, we are to respond to it. Responses must be single spaced, 1" margins, and exactly one page in length. The characters must use every last space available of that 1 page, and you must not turn in two pages. If I was to write something and have it end up being 1 page and a few sentences on page two; my instruction is to not re arrange and delete to fit it all on page 1. I am to delete everything on page 2, and only turn in page 1. If it means I am ending mid-word on page 1, so be it. He says if all we have to say only amounts to 1/2 a page, then we need to find something to ramble on about, we just need to fill that page.
I have about 1" or so more to fill. What is the best way to lengthen an essay like this?
My inclination is to stick in a few quotes.
