For discussion on Friday Jan. 20th
For the next section of hs creative writing, we will think about this proposition: “Thinking is the intentional act of making connections.”
This is an important reading/thought process for those of you who want to advance your writing past the basic and the formatted style of writing.
I would like you to do all three practice sections of this assignment (I think it is that important). To complete all of them, you will also need to read an essay I have attached.
I am giving you a lot of time to complete this, so please take it seriously. Thank you in advance:).
The reading and assignment have been shared on Google Docs https://docs.google.com/document/d/1N3qWOScAECBJ9oDjWJbhuCd8EgX0_5imzAAH-cl6BPg/edit
