I looked for an image, but I couldn't find one. Here's a description.

1) Top left diagonal line.
2) Horiz line right under that
3) vert line that connects the two
4) furthest left diagonal line
5) right diagonal line oposite it
6) right side of the kanji, down and back up to the right
7) the tail of the mu (furthest left stroke)

Does that make any sense?

Kanji Alive http://kanjialive.lib.uchicago.edu/main.php?page=overview&lang=en is good for stroke orders because it shows how it looks in brush and pencil.

I'm really strict with stroke order, but Watashi is the only Kanji which I can't stop writing in the wrong order (because I learnt it before I understood about stroke order!)

quite a few kanji have more than one official stroke order, or rather, have standard variants. This is especially true by nationality; Chinese will write many kanji in a different order than Japanese.

Ooh, that's an awesome collection of sites. Thanks, people. It will make writing that much more fun. :D I've been so damn busy these past two weeks I've barely learned anything new. Though I have been practicing the stuff I already know. ;)

how important is the stroke order? my tutor said it was but didnt go into any detail. I expect it makes the writing easier and more formulaic, but aside from that is there any other reasons?;)

Stroke order really starts to matter when you begin writing faster and more cursively. If you have a messed-up stroke order, the characters won't look right. Secondarily, if you know the stroke order you'll be able to recognize kanji more easily when others have written them sloppily or fast, as the lines will all make sense.

Actually yes. I think Kanji originated from chinese characters. So as a Chinese student, it makes learning Kanji a whole lot easier!!:D
