Annotated Research: Strategy for Bottlenecks in Writing

Question: What should writers do when they become stuck in their writing?

Answer: “In case studies of six college writers, found that re-reading seemed to help skilled writers get through a bottleneck and sustain the tempo of discourse production.” AE Schneider. 1985. P. 204.

Comment: A useful strategy. Most writers probably re-read when they’re stuck, but don’t think much of it. Inexperienced writers might appreciate the strategy of re-reading when stuck. RayS.
