Comps (advice)

Be humble.
Take control of the question:
Establish clear parameters for what you will include/exclude, acknowledge possible parts of the answer then rephrase to establish boundaries for the answer.
Pay homage:
Acknowledge big names, theories, etc so you can’t be accused of having overlooked something, someone important. Explain why/how these theorist’s work is &emdash; while still important &emdash; less relevant to the direction you wish to take.
Outline the course of the paper (in advance is recommended).
Rest well the day before.
