📝 English Composition Writing FAQ 💬

Much of the writing process takes place long before you put pen to paper or hands to keyboard. Rather than plunge right into a first draft when you get an assignment, spend some time thinking about what you hope to accomplish with your writing.

Writing is a form of communication. Approach a writing project as an attempt to communicate. Who you are writing for and your purpose for writing are as important to effective communication as what you have to say about a topic.

The more thought and planning you put into any given writing project, the smoother the actual writing will go and the stronger the resulting text will be.
