Taking Flight: Connecting Inner and Outer Realities during Invention

Antlitz, Susan E.
Series Edition: 
Vol. 1

Chapter Description

One of the toughest challenges students face is figuring out what to write about. Connecting personal identity and purpose to more public contexts and subjects can play a significant role in helping students to write confidently. “Taking Flight” acknowledges the anxiety writers can feel when faced with the task of inventing, while offering strategies for overcoming those challenges. The strategies discussed include journaling, conversation (including through digital means such as email and instant messenger), reflective methods such as prayer and meditation, and kinesthetic strategies such as role play, drumming, movement, and switching between handwritten and electronic writing technologies.
