An Introduction

Beginning

Writing a term, or research, paper is not always my idea of a good time.  I often feel lost in a strange world of professor pet peeves, measures and rules.  In other words, the fear of writing knocks at my door and I, in my infinite denial, invite him in to reside.  I sit before the computer screen, curser blinking, white screen blinding.  I think of many things:  Where do I begin?  Why do I have to write this stupid paper?  What’s in it for me?  Do teachers stay up late at night thinking of ways to torture me?  This is where my process begins.  The deadline creates the anxiety and the anxiety drives the writing.  My research writing process is not always pretty, not always what is considered the right way, or most efficient, but it does work for me and often brings me to a place of learning something new and something about myself as a writer.

Where is my thesis statement?  – “My research writing process is not always pretty, not always what is considered the right way, or most efficient, but it does work for me and often brings me to a place of learning something new and something about myself as a writer.”

Now I have to back this up.
