It can be challenging for a new student facing the first essay paper wondering what to sort out first; there is a great deal of confusing and tricky processes to follow, and rules to abide by. While the plethora of resources made available to avid seekers is practically limitless, it is no surprise that writing still isn’t a smooth process....   [tags: Writing, Writer, Writing process, Paragraph]

Breaking The Five Paragraph Theme Barrier By Thomas Nunnally

- Based on my high school experience, my view of writing has always been that the five-paragraph essay will be able to carry me through my life, and therefore, I would not have to learn another essay writing style but master this one. But in the essay “Breaking the Five-Paragraph-Theme Barrier” by Thomas Nunnally, we are told that “Students need to understand that they practice on the FPT to learn the principles of effective composition, principles that can be applied to any writing task, not to master a single format that will answer all their writing needs.” (70-71)....   [tags: Writing, Essay, Five paragraph essay, Thought]

Paragraph Development, Proof Reading, and Creating Better Introductions

- Writing, just like anything else in life, is something that can never be perfected by any man whether it is Stephen King, Stan Lee, or a regular college student. The subject of writing cannot be perfect because it is an art that in some cases the final work can be seen as beautiful to one person and horrific to the next guy. Authors always have to proofread, send their work to an editor, and rewrite their material and even than the book is not always one hundred percent correct.
