I'm having a hard time relating my body paragraphs to my thesis statement. What should I do fix this?
Let's take a look at the essay content. If your body paragraphs are well thought out and explained, then maybe we should brainstorm ways to reword your thesis to better fit the bulk of your work. On the other hand, maybe your body paragraphs just need some expansion. If that's the case, let's go through and identify where you could explain your ideas even further so that it better fits with your current thesis.

I'm having a really hard time finding motivation to do this essay. What should I do?
Finding motivation is maybe the most difficult part of doing homework, so you are definitely not alone. Let's take a look at the assignment rubric. Maybe there's a way you can relate your personal interests to the essay prompt. I find that people tend to be more motivated when they enjoy what they're working on. How can we shift our view of this essay from a homework assignment to your own piece of work?
Subject: Film and Theater
I'm writing a screenplay and I'm worried that there is too much dialogue or that the dialogue reads unnaturally. How do I make this better?
One of the most important parts of screenwriting and filmmaking in general is being able to tell the audience what is going on in the story without directly saying it. Let's talk about subtext. What is the theme of you story? What's the message that you want to get across in each scene? Let's take some time to determine those things, and then we can discuss how to rework the dialogue with the theme and subtext in mind.
