|Explaining the process of writing|
For my research I made a survey, observed a tutoring session and interviewed a local English professor. Through all my research and interviews, i was able to realize that good time management allows for students to have time for the process of writing. The process of writing can be broken down into these three steps: brainstorming, drafting and revising the final product. When a student has poor time management and procrastinates on their writing assignments, they can miss out or have to rush these crucial steps to writing.

I think where me and Stanley Fish differ is he chooses to look at the actual writing itself and how to create fundamentally sound sentence structure. I chose to look at the discipline and responsibility side of writing. I think that especially with new college students, having the freedom of being in college makes it difficult at times to have good time management and stay up on your assignments. It takes a lot of personal discipline to fight through the stress and distractions and make time for the process of writing. I believe that students that have good discipline with their time management succeed the most in college writing.
