Good writing takes time—LOTS of time. It can be really helpful to sit down at the beginning of a writing assignment to plan how you are going to get it completed. Breaking a big project down into smaller steps can make it feel less overwhelming and setting deadlines for each part of the project will keep you on track to get your assignment submitted on time. The suggested schedules below will help you avoid the dreaded “I’ve only written a page and it’s 11 pm on the day it’s due” situation. Use them to plan your project and manage your time wisely.
