The junior jumps for joy as she holds her class list in her hands. She made all the classes she wanted. Her face glows with jubilation. She hugs her family and her dog. She dances around the room and tells her friends who are worried and confused as to why she's happy. But she isn't just happy, she's ecstatic! She launches herself into the new semester refreshed and excited. However, the joy doesn't last for long. Her AP US History class starts late, putting her into panic and mayhem. She struggles to stay afloat in her first semester. Homework buries her. Essays assail her. And her grades!! Oh the horrors! The pain! How will she survive?!

What if you could be ready for those surprise quizzes?

Wouldn't it be great to be able to A+ that quiz and have a bunch of points to bump up your grade? To be able to look at the whiteboard or page with extreme calmness and think, "I've got this!" :) To sit with a silent smile on your face that will make others wonder, "How does she do it?!".

For professional writers the worst feeling is staring at a blank sheet of paper or white computer screen and trying to get started.  This can be devastating to a person that makes their living in writing but for a student who has not yet mastered the writing skills and thought process behind writing it becomes their major roadblock.
