Essay Writing Process

I read an essay on essay writing by Jordan Peterson. I loved it. I’ve been looking for a process for writing. My recent 30-day writing challenge is helping reestablish my writing habit, but it’s not great for deliberate practice. The essay writing process feels arduous and challenging – exactly what is needed for deliberate practice. I realise that I only go through perhaps 15% of Peterson’s process in past writing. I hope to change that.

In this post I want to highlight the essay writing process that Peterson outlines in my own words.

I like this process because it is how I naturally learn. Ask a question, find the answer. The essay writing makes it formal. It prevents half-hearted answers. This is the self-education process I seek: assign myself essays on topics that I am intensely curious about. Publish it online. Get feedback. Repeat.
