Writer Beware makes posts on which publishing houses to avoid at all costs, which words to look for and which words to watch out for in contracts, and several other things that will keep you in control and knowledgeable about the publishing process. I’d suggest reading through the website if you want to avoid getting ripped off, cheated, or scammed.
I’m just going to reblog this every so often because it’s a site that every writer needs to see.
- Memorize as many big/obscure words as you can and stuff them into the essay. Try to use the word in the correct connotation, but it’s OK if you’re off a little.
- Have good grammar.
- Write as much as you can. You can massage your hand cramps later. Write big. Fill up pages upon pages of meaningless word vomit. Don’t even plan. You can even botch a few facts.
Congrats! You’ll get a 10 or higher!
(The SAT essay is a joke. More than half the colleges don’t even take it into account when looking at your scores. I don’t understand why collegeboard insists on using it.)

villains who have feelings for heroes but aren’t willing to just ditch their life and everything they’ve worked for
sympathetic villains with goals and motivations other than heroic bonkybits
