Part 3 explores some of the topics that can be precursors to writing and engaging in productive dialogue with potential co-authors, editors, reviewers, and readers. These topics include motivations for writing; independent writing versus collaborative writing with colleagues and students; choosing an outlet; selecting a title; and preparing the abstract.

Discussion Questions

  1. What is your motivation for writing?
  2. What kind of approach or structure—following guiding questions or exploring through the writing itself—works best for you as a writing process?
  3. Which genre are you preparing to write for and how might that influence your writing?
