Writing Center: The Writing Process

A guide to information to help you research and write more effectively.


"Writing is as simple as 1,2,3." I think not!


For most students writing inspires the dread of a long drawn sequence of steps that are tedious and ineffective. A part of this deep seated grief comes from the fact that many students have the wrong idea about writing. The word "essay" originally comes from the French word essai which means "to attempt" or "to try." Writing is not something a student should do at one in the morning right before the day of the deadline and expect good results. Writing is a process that requires extensive thought and practice. Writing is different for everyone, and not one specified formula will be a fit for everyone. To help battle this, we have created a workable linear model or sequential steps that will aid in the Writing Process.
