Writing an Essay

An essay that discuses the following questions:

  • Which part of your writing process is your favorite? Why?
  • Does your process change with each assignment or class?
  • What is your relationship with revision? (Remember, revision and editing are different processes.)
  • Do you revise as you write, after a draft is completed, or both? Is this the best method for you? Why or why not?
  • Have you tried writing in blocks of time? Do you write an entire essay in one sitting? What are the benefits to your method? Are there any issues?

After thinking about your answers, create an essay that discusses the nature of your relationship with your writing process. This essay should be a coherent essay that pulls your thoughts together under the umbrella of a central idea, a thesis. In short, you must decide on a claim you want to make about your writing process and support it with the essay.  The support will be drawn from your personal experience and thoughts; no outside research is required. However, if you wish to reference from any of our readings about writing, please do and remember to cite appropriately.
This essay will be two to three pages in length and written in MLA format.

I’m trying to study for my Marketing course and I need some help to understand this question.

Hi Tutor,

I want you to write an essay about (Customs Exemption Between Countries).

Each student will write a proposal to the instructor (in proper memo format–with intro, body, closing) on the scope of the suggested topic for the formal report. [Submit proposal in memo format, word document with clear file name, attached to an e-mail.] The proposal should, at a minimum, describe the following:

  • The topic: fully describe the problem or process you are attempting to address
  • The need: describe the need driving the necessary change; the basic steps in implementing the change
  • Audience: an analysis of your intended audience for your topic; describe who would be able to implement your changes and/or suggestions

This proposal will be used to determine if your selected topic is approved, if modification to your topic is required, or if a different topic will be needed.

Consider including the following points in the proposal, but do not just do it as a Q&A.

  1. What is your proposed topic? (1-2 sentences)
  2. Why you are interested in this topic? (2-5 sentences)
  3. What do you already know about the topic? (2-5 sentences)
  4. What do you need to know/don’t know about the topic? Identify your research strategy (3-4 sentences)
  5. What is your “clear statement of the central business problem”–The intended GOAL/PURPOSE? (2-5 sentences)?
  6. Who is the INTENDED AUDIENCE? (2-3 sentences)
  7. Why is this important? Identify the implications of doing the research. (2-5 sentences)
