Good Writers

Question: Do good community college writers prefer to read or write?

Answer: “Found that these students preferred to write rather than read.” J Martin-Wambu. 1989. P. 209.

Comment: I frankly don’t know what this finding means. If they are good at writing, I can understand their liking to write. But that doesn’t mean they don’t like to read. And don’t forget the technique of reading as a writer. RayS.
