Class Year: 2012
Major: English, French Studies
Hobbies, Interests, Quirks, etc.: I love reading, watching movies, traveling, and baking.
What aspect of writing I find most difficult: Starting! Formulating a clear and opinionated thesis is hard for me, too–especially if there’s no prompt. I have to write multiple drafts just of my thesis!
My #1 piece of writing advice: Before starting a paper, figure out where you want it to go. For some people, this means a detailed outline; for others, it means a list of key words scribbled on a sticky note. Having your ideas sorted out means you won’t have to stop as often to figure out what you need to discuss next–so you can just keep writing!
