Introduction : The seven steps of the writing process -- How to get Help! -- Step 1. Getting started : I can't think of anything to write ; I hate writing assignments and other people's ideas ; I have trouble doing all the research -- Step 2. Getting your act together : My work habits are so disorganized ; I can never find what I need when I need it ; I have too much material to handle -- Step 3. Finding focus : I don't know what my story is really about ; I have trouble with the beginning ; I have problems selecting my best stuff -- Step 4. Looking for language : My vocabulary is so limited ; My early drafts are littered with clichés ; My words don't make things clear -- Step 5. Building a draft : I am totally blocked ; I can't stop procrastinating ; I have trouble working from a plan -- Step 6. Assessing your progress : I'm slow and miss my deadlines ; My middles sag ; It never ends well -- Step 7. Making it better : I don't know what to revise and run out of time ; My work is way too long ; I resent criticism and editing -- Final step: Keeping the faith -- 25 favorite writing books -- Excerpt from Writing tools : Introduction : A nation of writers -- Part I. Nuts and bolts : Tool 1. Begin sentences with subjects and verbs -- Tool 2. Order words for emphasis
