The purpose of this document is to highlight some fundamentals about getting started in the writing process. We understand that with writing, there is no one right way of doing things, no formulaic answer to the assignment at hand. Writing is a process and getting started on the process is oftentimes the most difficult hurdle in a project. We provided this document for those students who are looking for a place to start and hope they can find some tools to begin. All students are, of course, strongly encouraged to use the resources available to you at the DSC Writing Center.
