T Writing skills Enjoy the process here is such a lot of writing to do at university that it is worth finding the point of enjoyment in writing as a process. This is easier if: 1. You give yourself enough time to write up your work so that you are not always rushing to meet deadlines. 2. You break writing tasks down into several stages with their own deadlines. This is easier than trying to write the perfect essay or report first time. 3. You regard writing as a craft. Write several drafts. Aim to make each successive draft better than the previous one. 4. Familiarise yourself with the style and conventions of your subject. Take pride in producing a piece of writing that is good by the standards of your own subject. Define the task Spend time working out exactly what is required by the assignment title. The title will usually include a question that you must answer. Think through: Why was this particular title or assignment set? What are your tutors expecting that you will research?
