  1. Do you have any idea on what you want to say? I always start with a brief thesis, or some key words .

    Then, I make a brief outline, revising it after I have thought on it for a few hours or overnight. Finally, I make an thesis statement, outline, and then start writing.

    So what I am saying, think out what you want to say, then write.

    We will be happy to critique your work. One thing to remember in this topic is that winning is not usually easy, and there are many obstacles to overcome. Discipline helps one face the unknown.
