Motivation and Writing

Annotated Research

Question: Are writers always motivated to the same degree when they write?

Answer: “Revealed that all writers can be motivated and non-motivated at times.”  TJ Burrows. 1988. P. 432.

Comment: A no-brainer, but I need to be reminded that motivation is not a constant, even for good student writers. RayS.
