Writers write to convey information, to share ideas, to tell a story, to give sound and thought to otherwise silent voices. Some writers write for profit while some write to save others from their worst fears. Most writers live to put pen-to-paper. Inspiration feels the writer’s heart and spills over onto the keypad. For most writers it is a non-ceasing flow of wonderment. If writing is so enchanting why do most college students struggle to write? Certainly there are a plethora of reasons but I have selected and will cover over the next 4 blogs what I consider to be the top five reasons! Reason one:
While a college brand may be “be in it to win it” many college students find themselves in a quagmire. It is no secret that today many students juggle work with family life in addition to attending college.
Writing requires periods of contemplation. Most if not all college writing is research oriented or requires substantial reading. Yet many students are unable to dedicate time in their daily schedule for a methodical approach to writing.
In this instance, it is worthwhile for the student to take time out prior to registration for courses to meet with an academic adviser to carefully map out his or her multiple schedules: school, work, and/or personal. Deciding how many and which combination of classes to take is pivotal to proper time management. Taking time in the beginning ultimately saves time in the end!
