in an instrictional essay, do you use quotation marks if you are specifying what to write type etc.?

See example:

The trick is to write the word myself on a piece of paper and put it through a keyhole.

There are several ways to do this. I generally use quotation marks, but you could also use boldface type or italics. The most important thing is to be consistent in the way you mark the text.
