Excellent suggestions, Suzette!

Let me add...

Look hard into your past experience as well: likely somewhere, somehow,
especially if you have worked at all, you have already been doing some
writing on a semi-professional level. When I wanted to make the switch to
TWing, I pointed out the grant applications I had assisted with for a
charity I volunteered in, the employee performance reviews I wrote for my
burger-flipping subordinates, the training materials I prepared for the
same burger-flipping job, and the departmental reports I wrote for one of
my customer service McJobs. Think hard: surely you have done some writing,
somewhere, besides papers for class assignments. If you haven't, start now!
