Question description

Your Writing Process

Discussion 1

In this assignment, you will reflect on your writing process. 


Describe your writing process. What do you think you could do better? What suggestions do you have for your peers?

For example,

I used to have this perfection thing about sentences. I would write one sentence, revise it until it was "perfect," then I would write the next sentence. Needless to say, this is a poor strategy. I managed to get through my undegraduate degree with it, but the demands of graduate school quickly overwhelmed me. Luckily, I bumped into a book about writing by Howard Becker, the name of which I presently forget, and he introduced me to the work of Linda Flower who advocates the stuff you read in Wikipedia, Gracy, and Booth. It worked much better for me.

Nowadays, what I really need are more occasions to write. It's been a long time since I was in school, so I don't have anyone telling me to write anything. The last thing I wrote was a book review (oddly enough, about a book about sentences) over a year ago. I get out of practice.

I always advise people (especially people who are attempting big projects) to not try to edit and revise while drafting, and (in the case of school papers) that "done is better than good."

Your initial discussion board post should be at least 250 words in length and should use at least one resource as support. This resource may be your textbook, required readings for the course, or outside research. Use APA citation format to properly credit your supporting material. You should also include a descriptive subject line in this initial post.

We encourage you to participate fully in these discussion boards throughout the week, posting early and often. At a minimum, you must post your initial discussion thread by Wednesday at midnight (Central Time) of each week, and reply to at least two classmates' posts by Sunday at midnight of each week
