Who (or what) did you go to for help? What are some of the areas related to writing that still concern you? What challenges do you foresee in your becoming skillful as a scholarly writer?
–Your thoughts on why students have difficulties writing, including, but not limited to, fear of writing, past educational experiences in writing, and writer’s block.
