Example, part 1Lamott, Anne. Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life. New York: Anchor Books, 1995. Print. Anne Lamott, a professional writer, in her 1995 work, Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life, asserts that students argue mostly with their own inner critic when writing a paper. She supports this assertion through a variety of anecdotes, in which she uses humor to display students’ insecurities with their own writing abilities. Her purpose was to show that students should be more confident when writing, because they are often their own tough critics. Her intended audience includes writing students and teachers, and she targets this audience by using anecdotes from both the student and the teacher perspectives on writing.
Example, part 2Lamott’s book is relevant to my topic because she focuses onthe students’ writing processes as determinants of theirconfidence with writing. Stating, “Students’ lack of confidencewith writing often limits their abilities,” meaning that studentslimit their writing potential when they doubtthemselves, Lamott argues that writing teachers should workto increase their students’ confidence with writing (89). Thisarticle relates to the claims made by Swales, but he referencesthe discourse communities in which students write, whileLammott speaks more directly about individual students andtheir writing processes. This article can also be related to Grant-Davie, since he discusses rhetorical situations and theirinfluence on how students might target audiences through theirwriting.
