This week I’ve required “freewriting” and a “zero” draft — a kind of drafting where you work to get ideas on the page without worrying (too much) about the final draft of your Prologue essay. For this reflective journal assignment, use the following questions to help write about what this experience has been like for you. Don’t simply answer these questions, but use them to help write a developed response. While the language should be informal, please do think about the order of your ideas and use paragraphing to help separate your ideas. Aim for 300 words.
In what ways is freewriting easy, difficult, frustrating? How did it help you (or not) in developing your ideas for the Prologue essay? If I weren’t requiring you to write this way, what would your process be for this paper? (Important: I’m asking about your specific experience–not what you think the writing process is “supposed” to be.)
