    Follow the writing process, whatever you're writing!

    Prewriting: brainstorm, research, plan, outline, thesis statement -- If you don't have a thesis statement and outline yet, stop right now and do those steps; do not proceed without them.

    Writing: write first draft by starting with section II of your outline; write introduction after the body of the paper is written; write the conclusion last.

    Polishing: revise, concentrating first on the body of the paper, then the intro, then the concl (revision = making sure ideas are logical and sequential and support your thesis); proofread (spelling, grammar, usage, etc.)

    Do you have a thesis yet? Have you done your brainstorming (and maybe research) yet? Have you written an outline?

    First, read this article to see the huge number of duties that an administrative assistant may do.

    Then, brainstorm about what your fictitious woman may do. You could be humerous in describing these tasks. Does she really make coffee, shop for presents for him to give, and make golf outings for him???

    Have fun with this.
