In understanding conceptualizing, formulating and writing, Paltridge et al (2006) present some interesting insights on the background processes that go into when planning to write a text which can be useful for assessment of my text. Now according to these aspects, firstly I did plan for the text. Academic writing is not free form writing. It has to be researched thoroughly and has to be written. Therefore, for this text as well, I did plan how I was going to get research data, what time was to be invested in collection of data, interpretation, writing the first draft, etc. Having this plan helps me to stick with a time schedule as well which is quintessential to submit work on time. Now the second aspect mentioned by Paltridge et al (2009) is the changes to the plan. Having a plan and sticking to the plan is essential, but at times it might be necessary to also modify the plan. In my writing process, I had to modify my writing plan. This was because of the form of data that I was able to bring in to the work. There were many perspectives on the concerns, and if I had decided to capture them all in writing, it could have made my work lengthier. Therefore, I had to cut short on data collection midway, and I started putting together a written draft even when data collection was not complete. This was not how I had anticipated writing. I believed I would complete data collection before I even started writing.
