Write “To” Me, Not “For” Me continued…

Posted: December 14, 2015 in Home

So, I have already established the fact that essays are not written by checking off boxes and that essay writing is form of discourse, a conversation of sorts, but going in one direction. My reply won’t appear until after the finished product is produced.

I strongly recommend that you consider writing this essay “to” me. To do so, you should simply write as though you want to tell me something, to share your knowledge and ideas about the topic. I certainly believe that you are all independent thinkers, and I also believe that your thoughts are valuable. Whether or not you realize it yet, you have insight, and I want to hear it. Don’t bog your thoughts and ideas down in thinking about numbers of sentences and such. Just tell me what you want to say.

I look forward to reading your essays.
