A goal an author can have when writing is to let their writing’s ideas be spread through the reader. A writer accomplishes this by having an organized, but interesting paper. The writer doesn’t repeat phrases over and again, and twists are included where they are not expected. The most important thing good writing does is the text being able to relay its ideas to the reader in a vivid manner. The reader should be able to then remember what was said even after the text has been finished with reading.
These obstacles can seem insurmountable at times but with the help of a writing process it can be a little easier. This process starts when a claim is made. The claim is an opinion that a writer has on a topic such as people determine their core values through self-awareness. A claim can be disputed and argued over. Someone else can dispute this and say no people determine their core values through living life and using them as a guide.
After all this is done, coherence begins to form and everything starts to makes sense. This is similar to Peter Elbow’s first order of thinking. They both talk about not censoring their work while on the process. They both also mention that free writing allows writers to be more creative. Personally, I can also relate to Stafford’s way of writing because when I free write, it’s like I’m having a conversation with my friends, I don’t worry about a teacher reading my work.
Another purpose could be what the goals of a writer has in mind to accomplish when writing and how the writer wants the audience to think or feel about the topic. Also the writer should have in mind how they want the audience to feel and learn about the given information and what they will get out of it. Audience greatly influences the way someone writes and what they write about, the reason it changes how someone writes depends on the audience reading the material, if they already know about the topic the writer does not have to go into as much detail. It is important to understand what the audience is expecting from the writer and what the audience is expecting to learn. When someone writes for a specific person the style of writing will change depending who will receive the written material, their style of writing could be formal or informal.
When writers feel freedom to include all their ideas their writing becomes a jargon of ideas however, if given a prompt writing is more clear and straightforward. Prompts give writers the topic and the rest is based on research and opinion that they must make efforts to mirror in their writing. Although critics may apply that giving writers prompts does not allow the writers to express themselves entirely, writers are given a topic to take a stance and effectively explain why. The materials used throughout writing affect the effectiveness of a writing sample. If adequate articles and reliable websites are utilized to formulate opinions on an essay prompt, when cited properly, it is more likely for the essay to be effective.
Instead, some find it tempting to say "Looks fine to me," but your peers learn nothing from such feedback. More than evaluations of right and wrong, effective peer editing requires you to act as an interested reader who wants to learn as much as possible from the essay. Your job, then, requires you to read closely, comment, question, and offer the kind of feedback you yourself would find interesting. Start by telling the writer what you like and then point out places where you believe the writer was less effective. Remember to choose your language carefully.
Unlike Elbow, Murry slowly transitions into the subject he is going to talk about. Murry begins with writing something that relates to people, so therefore, it catches the reader’s attention. The way Elbow and Murry approach their topic is different because one author gets the attention of the reader and then transitions into what he is going to talk about and the other author starts off by just throwing facts at you and telling you what he is going to be talking about. Even though both Elbow and Murray get their point across, the way they give their information is different. Both authors use similes and metaphors in their writing, and I believe it is to keep the reader interested by comparing something to something else that they know.
In his article he explains that when you write it 's good to have an out line, but , you don 't necessarily have to have the whole paper written out Irvin say he bust the myth that “Writers figure out much of what they want to write as they write it. Rather than waiting, get some writing on the page—even with gaps or problems. You can come back to patch up rough spots.”( pg.4) All these authors explain how knowing where you want to take your essay when writing is the most important part. I know personally I can get caught up in meeting the requirements of the essay that sometimes I fall short in making it a well rounded
Many people think that reading more can help them to think and develop before writing something. Others might think that they don’t need to read and or write that it can really help them to brainstorm things a lot quicker and to develop their own ideas immediately (right away). The author’s purpose of Stephen King’s essay, Reading to Write, is to understand the concepts, strategies and understandings of how to always read first and then start something. The importance of this essay is to understand and comprehend our reading and writing skills by brainstorming our ideas and thoughts a lot quicker. In other words, we must always try to read first before we can brainstorm some ideas and to think before we write something.
They also take from one 's originality, one 's mark on a paper. Zinsser believes one should start to form their own writing style by looking at other authors or someone whose writing techniques they would like to mimick. In his case, Zinsser explains how he developed his writing style by imitating those of who he looked up too, and considers effortless writers such as, James Thunder, V.S Pritchett, and Lewis Thomas. Zinsser demonstrates sympathy with the reader showing them how he did this and it is fine if they do as well. Zinsser therefore claims, “Don’t worry that by imitating them you’ll lose your own identity.
