Writing Across the Curriculum/
Writing in the Disciplines
for Students

 Just start typing your name and the title.

When you need to get started on a paper but feel stuck, try just typing your name and title on the paper and set up the right font and line spacing. You can send signals to yourself that it is time to start writing by consistently performing a ritual like this.

Like I mentioned before, my daily ritual that lets me know that it is time to start working is plugging in my USB flash drive into my computer. Once the flash drive is plugged in, it feels weird not to start working.

Next: Switch to a different way of writing or writing location. ->
