My colleague Mike Arnzen talked about the writing process with the Voice of America.
Michael Arnzen teaches English and heads humanities studies at Seton Hill University in Pennsylvania. Mr. Arnzen is also an award-winning author. He says he understands the desire to write something and be done with it.
“We’ve all been there. We feel we’ve done (something) good enough, and can’t we move on with our lives?”
But he believes revision of writing is a necessary skill for college. He says the classroom is a good place to practice patience, concentration and listening.
“There are rewards with spending time with your thoughts and really taking time to compose your ideas in a coherent way.”
