Mental Statues While Writing

Starting the writing process is always difficult for me, especially when I don’t fully know what exactly I am going to discuss in the paper. Of course you have to do research and find the sources that will go into the paper, and sometimes the search allows us to find a new take on the topic we are discussing. This process of finding sources as one of the first steps, although helpful, is very frustrating to me. I think very differently than others, I need to have a good idea of what exactly I’m writing about. I need to keep reminding myself about what I’m writing. I need to see a list of the points I will talk about in order to stay focused on writing. Even though we are practicing all the parts of our paper before we will actually write the real deal, I still don’t understand the concept or purpose of the arguments we need to write about. I just can’t write this way.
