"Academic Writing" guides students through the process of writing a 10-page college-level research paper.
Indicates required field
George R.R. Martin, author of The Game of Thrones series, has said, quite bluntly, "Writing is hard." In interviews, he has agreed with the
offered by earlier writers, "I don't like writing. I like having written."

not having enough to say
having too much to say
unsure how to do proper footnotes and citations
