After reading both Shitty First Drafts, and The Maker’s Eye , I began to question my entire writing process. I am the kind of person that always has a plan before writing. I was never a fan of free writing, and therefore I never really tried it. When I begin the writing process, I usually read the prompt the day it is given. I think about it for a little while and then I begin handwriting possible ideas for my thesis. I then pick the strongest thesis, and begin to find and jot down evidence that proves my point. When I have enough evidence to construct decent body paragraphs, I begin to type what I have, as well as analysis, followed by a conclusion.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
