The Charleston Southern University Writing Center Norris Hall 209
We help students learn to analyze assignments, address audiences appropriately, improve their composing processes, strengthen the focus and organization of their writing and improve their basic grammar, usage and mechanics. We also help students become better editors by teaching them proofreading skills. The Writing Center’s goal is to help students become better writers. Summer Sessions Open Monday-Thursday, 10:00am-3:00pm To schedule an appointment: http://csuniv.mywconline.com/
Mission: Help students learn more about their writing through individual or small group tutoring sessions.

csuniv.edu Writing centers give students a place to find their voices. In writing centers, writers try out different approaches and styles, and the feedback provided by tutors gives these writers many options. In this way, writing centers don't narrow a writer's approach; rather, they broaden it. This, then, a...
When asked "How do you deal with writers’ block?" New York Times bestelling author, John Green, said,
"I just give myself permission to suck. I delete about 90% of my first drafts (the only exception to this rule so far has been Will Grayson, Will Grayson) so it doesn’t really matter much if on a particular day I write beautiful and brilliant prose that will stick in the minds of my readers forever, because there’s a 90% chance I’m just gonna delete whatever I write anyway. I find this hugely liberating. I also like to remind myself of something my dad said to me once in re. writers’ block: “Coal miners don’t get coal miners’ block.”

~KURT VONNEGUT'S TIPS ON HOW TO WRITE A GREAT STORY~
-Use the time of a total stranger in such a way that he or she will not feel the time was wasted.
-Give the reader at least one character he or she can root for.
-Every character should want something, even if it is only a glass of water.
-Every sentence must do one of two things — reveal character or advance the action.
-Start as close to the end as possible.
-Be a Sadist. No matter how sweet and innocent your leading characters, make awful things happen to them-in order that the reader may see what they are made of.
-Write to please just one person. If you open a window to the world, your story will get pneumonia.
-Give your readers as much information as possible as soon as possible. Abandon subtlety. Readers should have such complete understanding of what is going on, where and why, that they could finish the story themselves, should cockroaches eat the last few pages.
"Writer's block is the greatest side effect of boredom." -Jason Zebehazy

[03/04/13] "I could never have done what I have done without the habits of punctuality, order, and diligence, without the determination to concentrate myself on one subject at a time." -Charles Dickens
[02/27/13] "Close the door. Write with no one looking over your shoulder. Don't try to figure out what other people want to hear from you; figure out what you have to say. It's the one and only thing you have to offer." -Barbara Kingsolver
