    Ah, writing…. So deceptively simple and yet for many people, so fraught with mystery. The coming section will attempt to demystify the writing process, making it not just easier but giving you tried-and-true tricks to smooth out your written work. It might even be fun!

    It’s time to shift from our earlier focus on reading and working with texts to now talk about what you need to do when you’ve been given a writing assignment. There’s much to manage, from contemplating what your readers want and expect to figuring out how to get the words down on paper. Now, you’re in the writer’s seat. Buckle up!
