    2. 2. Writing Blurbs • Writing and thinking and learning are the same process.
    3. 3. Writing as Thought • Writing is thinking on paper. Anyone who thinks clearly should be able to write clearly— about any subject at all. • Contrary to general belief, writing isn’t something that only “writers” do; writing is a basic skill for getting through life. Yet most adults are terrified of the prospect.
    4. 4. Writing as Thought • Writing organizes and clarifies our thoughts. Writing is how we think our way into a subject and make it our own. Writing enables us to find out what we know—and what we don’t know—about whatever we’re trying to learn
    5. 5. Writing as Thought • Clear writing is the logical arrangement of thought. • We write to find out what we know and what we want to say. • How often [has] the act of writing even the simplest document—a letter, for instance—clarified my halfformed ideas.
