Words of Wisdom

Writing simply means no dependent clauses, no dangling things, no flashbacks, and keeping the subject near the predicate. We throw in as many fresh words we can get away with. Simple, short sentences don't always work. You have to do tricks with pacing, alternate long sentences with short, to keep it vital and alive.... Virtually every page is a cliffhanger--you've got to force them to turn it.

— Dr. Seuss

This workshop offers suggestions to graduate students as they embark on writing projects. We discuss methods of selecting an appropriate topic, conducting research, and planning to meet academic goals and deadlines. We conduct an overview of Texas A&M resources for pursuing and organizing research. We also offer strategies for staying motivated.
