Madman, Architect, Carpenter, Judge: Roles and the Writing Process by Betty Sue Flowers

Madman, Architect, Carpenter, Judge: Roles and the Writing Process:



"What's the hardest part of writing?" I ask on the first day of class.



"Getting started," someone offers, groaning.



"No, it's not getting started," a voice in the back of the room corrects. "It's keeping on once you do get started. I can always write a sentence or two-but then I get stuck."



"Why?" I ask.



"I don't know. I am writing along, and all of a sudden I realize how awful it is, and I tear it up. Then I start over again, and after two sentences, the same thing happens."

  2. I agree with the first person. I believe the hardest part is getting started with the writing. I find it hard to find a place to start without getting frustrated and restarting a million times.
