Writing About Writing

We’ve had nearly a whole semester now of talking about the craft of writing, what makes something “good” writing, and the styles of different writers. Today, I ask you to consider what these terms mean to you. In a blog post of at least 250 words, write a mini-essay that addresses the following.

  • What is writing?
  • Why do we write?
  • What makes someone a writer?
  • Do you consider yourself a writer?

You may also pull from the texts we’ve used this semester, outside sources, or even the pieces written by your classmates to help make your point.

You should post these entries to your blogs.

You should take the time to respond to at least one of your classmate’s posts by tomorrow.
