Writing: Lockdown guide
Today is the last day of writing a new section - choose this from your plan.
Remember, as always, re-read through what you have done. This is essential to check that your writing not only makes sense - but you can also spot where you need to vary the structure of the sentences or add in punctuation.
Tomorrow will be the final day for this writing. By the end of your writing today, it would be good to know that you have your introduction and three or four sections of focus information.
