Chapter 1: Exploring the Writing Process

This chapter contains the following sections:
  • PART A: The Writing Process
  • PART B: Subject, Audience, and Purpose
Chapter introduction:

Did you know that the ability to write well characterizes the most successful college students and employees-in fields from education to medicine to computer science? Skim the job postings in career fields that interest you and notice how many stress "excellent writing and communication skills." Furthermore, reading and writing enrich our daily lives; in surveys, adults always rate reading, writing, and speaking well as the most important life skills a person can possess.

The goal of this book is to help you become a more skilled, powerful, and confident writer. You will see that writing is not a magic ability only a few are born with, but a life skill that can be learned. The first chapter presents a brief overview of the writing process, explored in greater depth throughout the book. Now I invite you to decide to excel in this course. Let Evergreen be your guide, and enjoy the journey.
