Tech writing is easy. Step one: Say something obvious. Elaborate on it a little, and then spend twenty seconds on Google Scholar finding somebody else who says something similar. Add a corollary that makes it look like you agree, but have thought of something further. Two: Plan the document as a presentation. Thinking the document through from headlines down to bullet points should give you enough structure to be able to turn bullet points into paragraphs and just eat away at the word count. Finally: use the phrases notwithstanding, wherewithal, subject to, and thusly with out fear. Also, remember to pepper with equations that are patently obvious, but look impressive no matter how tenuously connected to the subject at hand.

I'm the same, don't worry, it's all going to be fine. It's all going to be ok. It's fiiiine.

My solution: go to a beer festival, get drunk, insult some teenagers and get one of them to hit you around the head with a brick. Get seriously concussed and use this as an excuse for writing a shit report and also not entering any exams.

I think your site is a bit confused :) It says "Zero Four" but its blatantly "One Four" at the moment

I've checked. There are no beer festivals before Thursday! :/ Hope you're doing well these days, Gordon.

If there are no beer festivals in existance then it is your responsability, nay, duty to plan your own.

Incidentally I think pretty well everyone considers anything they've ever written to hand in to be a piece of crap. Roll on the day when you can just think what you want to say, and hand in what you actually mean.
