Writing Across the Curriculum/
Writing in the Disciplines
for Students

 Go back and work on your writing plan.

Sometimes, particularly when you’re already working on a paper, the reason you get stuck is because your outline and notes don’t end up matching the paper you figure out you’re really writing. That’s ok. It’s good, in fact. In that case, revise your writing plan so that you can move forward. Check and make sure that the paper still matches the assignment prompt, and carry on.

Fixing up your writing plan doesn’t really feel like writing, and nailing it down will hopefully help you feel good about the paper.

Next: Start writing whatever section you feel best about. ->
