If you have a hard time starting, revisit Ch. 28 Generating Ideas and Text and Ch. 30 Drafting in The Norton Guide. It has lots of ideas on how to get out of writer’s block. And remember – you do not have to start your work with formulating the thesis – you can write it later, when you have already developed some content and can see the point more clearly yourself.
