So your teacher asks you to write another paper. Five pages long… Sucks right? Well, not so much if you know the secret!

Typically, papers are written in Times New Roman font, but most of the time your teacher will not specify the type of font that is required. That means you are free to use whatever font you’d like! Including, the best of them all. Known as…

Courier New.

Courier New font is special. Courier New gives each letter the same amount of space. So when I’s are just a single line, they take up the same amount of space as the letter M or O.

This makes for your papers to become much longer than they would be if you typed in Times New Roman. The best part, your teacher has no clue. It’s pretty fantastic if you ask me. I used it all through high school and even in college when I had to write papers.

On average, while Times New Roman makes two and a half lines of words using size 12 font, Courier New will use a little over four.

 

So you are welcome. Use this secret wisely, and don’t tell your teachers! 🙂
