Elements of Writing

Peter Schwartz

Presented at: IRM 1998

Date: Jun 28, 1998

Many people dread the process of formal writing, finding it frustrating, and even agonizing. Most of their dlfficulties, however, are unnecessary and self-imposed––a result of mistaken ideas about the nature of writing. These two lectures help undo those errors. Mr. Schwartz examines the science, and mechanics, of writing. He covers such issues as: the fundamental characteristic f good writing; the crucial integrating function of the theme; context––the reader's vs. the writer's; the necessity of an outline (in fact, of two outlines); and the writer's division of labor between his conscious and subconscious minds.
