Preparing for our Research & Contextual Analyses

“I tell college students that by the time they sit down at the keyboard to write their essays, they should be at least 80 percent done. That’s because “writing” is mostly gathering and structuring ideas.”
David Brooks

Andrea Lunsford, in your St. Martin’s Handbook (9a — page 186)
