Outlines, outlines, outlines

Personally, I believe that all parts of the writing process should cater to the writer’s needs and should never be set in stone. As a Writing Center consultant, I spend much of my time suggested that students write an outline before they dive into their paper. This is a piece written specifically for the MSU Writing Center’s main website. The website showcases a variety of pieces, from interesting music to grammar and writing help. I wanted this piece to really “sell” the idea of outlining, since many students balk at this extremely useful tool because of preconceived notions of what an outline should be. This piece really allowed me to balance an informative essay with a blogging-style tone, and I hope I was able to convince all the readers to outline, outline, outline!
