Question: What is the history of the writing process and what can we learn from its study?
Answer: “Gives a historical account of the composing process and gives evidence that we err when we validate one single composing process.” EK Larsen. 1987. P. 191.
Comment: Read the voluminous files of individual writers in The Paris Review Interviews, etc. and you will see validation that there is no one writing process that every author uses. However, focusing on one writing process in class allows individuals to begin to assess its effectiveness for them, and they can then develop their own practices. RayS.
