Have you ever had any barriers or obstacles that made it difficult for you to write a paper? If so what strategies did you use to over come this?
Last semester I really struggled with my argumentative essay. I have not written an argumentative essay since high school, so I was intimidated by the prompt. I made so many corrections, rearranged my entire paper multiple times, and had to add a lot of supporting research. Another challenge I had was writing the paper without having it filled with just quotes and finding an objection that I could reply to without sounding overly biased. To help me with this issue, I wrote the prompt at the top of my paper so I could stay on subject, and I made the topic personable to my life. This strategy helped me connect with the assignment, so it was not boring and allowed me to be an honest writer. Moreover, another strategy that helped was just writing everything that came to mind, then going back to edit and structure my paper. The last strategy that I used was writing my thesis first. This gave me a general idea on what to write about, and it served as a road map for the entire paper.
