Drafting

Now that you have organized your information, you can begin drafting your report. In your first draft, try to do it quickly when the ideas from your research are clear in your mind. If it becomes overwhelming, look at your organizational outline and start with one section at a time. If starting at the beginning of your paper causes writer's block, then start drafting somewhere else.

In drafting your paper, paragraph development depends on the overall Type of Organization of your paper and the Patterns of Development you use.

When drafting your paper, it is important to create cohesion and good writing style. Below are some websites for guidance:
