Writing Workshop # 2


Transition words

“Words to cut from your writing”

where do you start
Where do you start???

Many options:

  • Start with a counterargument (something that presents an opposing viewpoint)
  • Start with your position
  • Start with a question to your audience about your subject, or about something related to your argument

Seldom, if ever, has an attempt to silence a critic backfired so badly.

The NHL and the National Hockey League Players’ Association this past week entered into a formal partnership with the You Can Play Project, an organization dedicated to ending homophobia on playing fields and in locker rooms in every sport. Hockey’s commitment has rightly been called historic.

The NHL is the first major North American professional sports league to officially partner with a lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender advocacy group on this scale.
