Questions To Guide Your Writing Process

HMXP 102

Dr. Fike

 

The following is what I call the Seven Sheets Method.  Take a piece of paper for each of the sections below.  Answer the questions.  Rewrite your answers.  Then do a formal outline.  Only then should you try to write your draft.  In other words, if you use the SSM, you will engage in invention (idea formation) at the prewriting stage. (An alternative would  be to cut and paste the seven sets of questions into your paper and then begin filling in answers.)
