respond to ONE of the following prompts in 500+ words:
- In “Revision Strategies of Student Writers and Experienced Writers,” Sommers contrasts writing with a “predefined meaning” (paragraph 19) versus “writing as discovery” (paragraph 23). How are these two understandings of writing different? What does writing as discovery seem to allow that writing a predefined meaning doesn’t? Can you think of examples from your own writing that reflect each process? Was one kind of experience better than the other? Explain.
