The seven steps of the writing process -- How to get Help! -- 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 -- 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 -- 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 -- Looking for language. My vocabulary is so limited ; My early drafts are littered with clichés ; My words don't make things clear -- Building a draft. I am totally blocked ; I can't stop procrastinating ; I have trouble working from a plan -- Assessing your progress. I'm slow and miss my deadlines ; My middles sag ; It never ends well -- 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 -- Keeping the faith -- 25 favorite writing books
