The whole thing should take about 15 minutes.
If you finish early, continue working on your essay final draft by revising and rewriting, or work on your Author Project (that’s due in early October).

We have talked a bit about the process of writing and how to start, follow through, and create a finished product.

1. What part of the writing process seems to come the easiest to you?
2. Which part of the writing process is the most difficult for you?
3. Which part of the writing process do you feel that you need to work on the most and what will “working on it” look like for you?
