2 Exercise 1: Identify Your Writing Preferences


Knowing your writing preferences will help you be more successful in your writing process. To define your idiosyncratic writing preferences, write a journal entry (several paragraphs) that addresses the following questions:

  • When do you like to write?
  • Where do you like to write?
  • What writing tools (paper, pens, pencils, laptop, dictionary, thesaurus, etc.) do you need in order to write a document?
  • What genres do you prefer to write? Why?
  • How do you write your first draft? Are you a think-write writer or a write-write writer?
  • What stages of the writing process do you use? Which are your strengths? And which are your weaknesses?
