Doctoral Capstone Preproposal Starter Kit:
Writing as a Process

Writing Resources for Doctoral Students in the Initial Stages of Development
These resources are for doctoral students at the premise and prospectus stages and who are not yet working on their official proposal documents.

Writing as a Process

Write to generate and develop your ideas. Think of writing as a process to help get your thinking started, not just a way to capture a finished product on the page. The doctoral capstone document is long, and it will go through many drafts and versions—use that process as an opportunity to practice your skills and become an expert in your topic.
