Baking A Cake: A metaphor for my writing life
Begin with a detailed recipe for the cake.
Just like writing, I want to have a guideline of how I am writing my paper.
Gather all the ingredients and utensils stated in the recipe.
I need to do research and acquire resources in order to have the knowledge to write a paper.
Preheat the oven and grease a cake pan.
I need to have the proper environment to write my paper in.
Mix the dry ingredients together and the wet ingredients together.
I need to know how to organize my paper and write about my topic in a steady flow instead of a crazy mess.
Mix everything into a bowl and stir your batter.
Making sure that the paragraphs have sentences that lead to each other and have proper transitions to a different topic.
Pouring the batter into the cake pan and baking the cake pan.
Finalizing the paper by double-checking and submitting it.
