There are 20 lessons in this book, each of which should take you about 20 minutes to complete. If you read five chapters a week and complete the practice exercises carefully, you should become a more powerful and effective essay writer in one month. Although each lesson is designed to be an effective skill builder on its own, it is important that you proceed through the book in order, from Lesson 1 through Lesson 20. The material in Section 2 references and builds on what you’ll learn in Section 1, as Sections 3 and 4 reference and build on Sections 1 and 2.Writing is a process— a series of skills, strategies, and approaches that writers use to create effective essays. In reality, this process isn’t as linear this book presents. You might prefer to brainstorm first, and then write a thesis statement—and that’s fine.However, once you understand the writing process, you can adapt it to your unique working style and to each specific writing situation you encounter.
