Writing Across the Curriculum/
Writing in the Disciplines
for Students

 Start writing whatever section you feel
 best about.

Don’t feel like you have to write paragraphs and pages in order. Take advantage of the wonders of copy and paste, and just dive into the paragraph or idea that seems most appealing to you.

To be honest, I started writing this section of the handbook first. I thought that other parts seemed kind of daunting, so I came here to the troubleshooting part. You hopefully won’t know that without me telling you because we will edit and proofread the whole handbook to make it mesh together.  

Instead of being stuck on the first section, and sitting at the computer feeling like a prisoner, here I am at the end of this section, feeling pretty good about what I’ve accomplished and like I won’t dread the next time I sit down to write.

Next: Leave a little bit of writing energy and enthusiasm in the tank. ->
