Writing Well

Question: What is another conceptualization of the writing process?

Answer/Quote: “To write well, writers must be willing to be remade, to not always know, to be challenged, to be a little bit out of control, to be doubted, and maybe, most importantly, to be believed. If writers can open themselves to these processes, their writing, instead of serving as a static representation of a single moment in timer or thought, becomes a kind of live documentation of growth.” P. 497.

Comment: I think this statement means that writers must take their ideas seriously, be willing to have them challenged and then their writing consists of documents that demonstrate growth. Thought-provoking. RayS.
