🦄 Thanks for sharing!

I totally get what you are saying. Just like you, I had a similar experience with essay writing. For me, what I did was memorizing thousands of vocabulary words that are sometimes archaic, if not eccentric. And I would try my very best putting them into essays that I needed to write. One phrase that I will always remember is what I coined "kowtow mannerism", which I intended to mean someone who's subservient. Until today, I couldn't find any usage of this phrase when I googled it ... On the bright side, I did get to know a lot of strange words that not many people are familiar with.

Keep posting!
