    The Planning Stage

    It is very difficult and even futile to try and think about WHAT you want to write and HOW you want to phrase it in the same time. In planning, you try to foresee what you want your final text to look like, using the following points:

    • Define your writing topic and content area. Narrow your topic down to a specific angle will develop in your text. Make sure you are aware of any specific content or technical requirements you may have from teachers. Research and analyze information sources if needed.

    • Calculate the time needed to complete your writing task. Remember that even a 1,500 word college essay may take a few days to properly complete, so do not postpone writing assignments to the last minute!

    • Brainstorm and jot down any ideas, thoughts, arguments, words, and phrases you think are relevant to your text.

    • Organize your preliminary arguments into an outline following a logical order that would suit the general essay structure of opening, body, and ending. Put ideas in sub-groups that will later develop into paragraphs.
