It sure is easy these days to use a dictionary or a thesaurus (especially online! ) or other guides to write out essays, papers, and articles. But what makes everything written so special is how unique it is.

Go with the idea that is planted, and toy with any plots or settings of what will happen, how they happened, etc.

come much easier. Be sure to form complete sentences and learn how to form complicated, although readable, sentences and paragraphs. Use that new vocabulary you learned to communicate in more detail and precision.
