Learning and the Process of Writing

Question: What is the paradox between learning and writing?

Answer/Quote: “Learning is messy. But writing—a primary tool in learning—is supposed to be near, tidy, straightforward, and smart in the end. I don’t always feel smart and I can’t think in tidy sentences.” P. 484.

Comment: An analogy I can think of is the use of word processing. No matter how well written by a student, word processing makes the writing look neat and professional in appearance. RayS.
