Writing Guide



  • A project helps you build skills that'll serve you well in and out of school (time management, goal setting, researching, etc.)   Employers LOVE these skills!
  • These projects are designed to walk you through one step at a time.  Each step builds on the one before it. If you concentrate on each step and complete it on schedule, things will be just fine!
  • Use the other assignment tabs to the left accordingly, depending on what your project requirements.  For example, you may find that using the Research Paper section works best for the steps of your project.
  • If you do fall behind, contact your instructor about catching up right away.  

Take it one step at a time, and pay attention to due dates

  • Do not procrastinate!
  • Keep referring back to the assignment to make sure you’re right on track.
  • Complete each step on time or you risk getting off track and that’s where the difficulty begins.
  • A steady pace will lead to success!

Focus on the PROCESS to get a good final PRODUCT

  • Things will start to come together as you progress.
  • Continuous review of your project sections will mean a polished end product.  Multiple reviews from other sources make for a good end result.
  • If you are required to submit drafts of your project, apply the feedback from your instructor to your project.

Use support and resources as needed

Make it easy on yourself!  There are plenty of resources available for you throughout this process.

Remember that writing is a process.  If you get stuck as you go, utilize your resources:

Take the learns

Take notice of the the things that worked well for you during the project as well as the things that didn't go well.  Learn from those things and recognize your growth!
