MORE WRITING TIPS FOR ADAW Do not skip lines – they barely give you enough space as it is. Remember to indent each new paragraph. Read over what you have written often to make sure it actually says what you want it to say. You will not be able to use a dictionary or thesaurus. You may not ask your teacher ANY questions about the topic or your text.
