Writing and Editing: Drafting

This third course in the \"Good with Words: Writing and Editing\" series will give you a number of strategies to help with what is often the most intimidating, even paralyzing part of the writing process: getting started. You\'ll learn about the \"planning fallacy\" and \"temptation bundling.\" You\'ll get a chance to experiment with \"freewriting\" and \"writing before you are ready.\" And you\'ll continue to benefit, through our ongoing \"Good Sentences\" and \"Takeaways\" segments, from the models and advice of a diverse set of writers. As with the other three courses in this series, you will also get access to a wide range of books and other resources you can use even after you finish the course. These include: (1)the readings and exercises provided to the students who have taken the in-person version of this course at the University of Michigan and the University of Chicago; (2)two digital libraries of excellent writing from a diverse collection of journalists, scientists, novelists, poets, historians, and entrepreneurs; (3)a monthly \"Good Sentences\" email.
