A piece of writing advice: Treat every assignment as if it were something you chose to do on your own.  If you don’t find it interesting at first, figure out why someone would.  This isn’t about doing homework – it’s about cultivating your own unique intellectual experience.  All the best work starts with that attitude, and even when the work goes badly, no one with that attitude ever came away empty-handed.

A piece of writing advice: If you’re having trouble getting started, remember you don’t have to write your paper in order. It’s easy to get stuck trying to write the perfect introduction, so try writing your body paragraphs first and going back to your intro when you’re done. It often makes your introduction connect better to the paper and means you don’t have to wait around so long for inspiration to strike if you’re on a deadline.
