Sundays too my father got up early
and put his clothes on in the blueblack cold,
then with cracked hands that ached
from labor in the weekday weather made
banked fires blaze. No one ever thanked him.
I'd wake and hear the cold splintering, breaking,
When the rooms were warm, he'd call,
and slowly I would rise and dress,
fearing the chronic angers of that house,
Speaking indifferently to him,
who had driven out the cold
and polished my good shoes as well.
What did I know, what did I know
of love's austere and lonely offices?
Choose an institutional process you know well—perhaps one you learned as part of a summer job: how hamburgers are made, how people are admitted to hospitals, how lawyers operate behind the scenes, how political campaigns are run, how a play is produced. If possible, choose a process that looks different to insiders than to the general public. See if you can write an exposé of sorts—a process paper that reveals the real, true story (for better or worse).
Think of a process you know better than most people in your class—like canning strawberries, using a spreadsheet, taking inventory, resolving conflicts, or kayaking through whitewater. Or think of a zany process—like how to become famous by being really incompetent (ala Paris Hilton), how to travel around the world without paying for it, how to get someone else to wash your car. Make a list of steps, and then describe each step. To make an essay of a process paper, you have to interpret the process—make it interesting to people who have no intention of doing it themselves.
1. Choose a process that you understand better than most of your readers.
2. If the process occurs in a set sequence of steps (e.g., baking a cake, changing a tire), create an outline by naming the steps and arranging them in the right sequence.
3. If the process is one that does not necessarily occur in a set sequence of steps (e.g., winning at chess, succeeding in college), create an outline by naming the necessary activities and arranging them in a sequence that will best maintain the interest of your readers.
4. If your purpose is just to explain the process, expand each step into a sentence, a paragraph, or a few paragraphs—depending on how complex the step is. Be sure to define any terms that may not be clear to your readers.
5. If your purpose is to interpret the process, describe each step in a way that makes your readers feel, understand, or believe what you want them to feel, understand, or believe about it.
6. After you've selected and arranged your details, add an introduction and an ending.
