Instead of ordering one set of 200 sheets of letterhead writing paper (with mine & my husband's names and our address), I ordered 200 sets of 200 sheets of paper. That means I will now be receiving 40,000 sheets of letterhead... how can I make this less wasteful and use it all up? [more inside]

I have a perfect notebook, left over from college, and would love to find more just like it. But it has no branding -- I have no idea who manufactured the darn thing. My school doesn't seem to sell them anymore.
It's 7" by 10", double-wire bound, cloth hardcover, with nice lined pages. Each page has a little recycling triangle symbol on it (indicating 100 percent recycled).
Pics inside. Anyone know who could've made it, or where to find the same?
Many thanks! [more inside]

I'm looking for an asymmetrical moleskine-like notebook. Roughly 8"x5", leather-bound, and I'd like it to have a grid on the left-hand pages and either ruled or blank on the right-hand pages. (Or vice-versa.) Does anyone make anything like this?

I have 2 hours to lecture to a bunch of 18 year-olds how to write well. The bulk of their work-load will be somewhere along the lines of position papers, research papers and summaries of conferences. How do I keep them glued to their chairs?
More info in explanation. [more inside]

What should an extended abstract (in the humanities) look like? This is for philosophy in particular, though I assume it might be a similar style for other disciplines. [more inside]

Looking for cheap squared paper notebooks, available either online or the UK high street (not Staples or Paperchase, I can't get to these easily and Paperchase sucks up all my money) preferably with tough covers. Moleskines are too small and expensive! [more inside]

How do you learn to write quickly? I have a good number of 5-15 page papers due in the next couple of days and they're killing me. I have no lack of ideas, I have no lack of outlines and notes I can create. But somewhere between holding the notes and writing the sentences down my brain sticks and I spend an hour writing and re-writing the first paragraph. What to do? [more inside]

Anyone know of any good programs for research paper/thesis writing? One that automates your end/footnote and in-text notation after loading in your bibliography/references?
I will be writing a long and involved research paper and any program that helps me to format and note my references in the body of the paper would help so much!
