You’ve got your little tricks to superficially fill space in papers. Try this one if your intellectual stimulation is at its limit and you’ve got nothing else to say, from Columbia’s Bwog:
If you’re writing a paper and need another page or two but have nothing more to say (surely, we can all relate!), you should bump up all the periods to size 14 font. It’s impossible to tell (on the page or printed out) if the paper is double-spaced, and it results in an extra page of text. Right before our eyes, the history paper of a friend grew from 7 to eight and a half pages. It was breathtaking.
Or, make the periods smaller if you’re well over any page limit and have nothing left to cut out, you overachiever, you.
