Words of Wisdom

Ideas can come from anywhere, they are the vital spark that starts the writing process. One of the best ways of deciding whether you’ve got a good idea for a movie is to ask yourself one simple question: “If someone else had written this story, would I get on a bus, go down to the cinema and pay to watch it?”

— David Griffith

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.
