  4. 4. Lesson 10 and so what.notebook 4 September 12, 2013 SO WHAT? I remember that when I was in fifth grade I got really sick. My throat was raw, and all my joints ached. The family doctor said I had rheumatic fever. I had to stay in bed for six months. I couldn't walk up and down stairs or even go to the bathroom by myself. When my dad came home from work at night, he'd carry me downstairs so I could watch television and be with the rest of the family, then carry me back upstairs at bedtime. Otherwise it was a lonely, boring time. All I could do was read. During the six months I had rheumatic fever I practically ate books. I made my poor mother go to the library almost every day for new ones. Finally the doctor said I could go back to school. It was one of the happiest days of my life, even though I couldn't run or play sports for a long time. -Nancie A.
  5. 5. Lesson 10 and so what.notebook 5 September 12, 2013 The Rule of So What? • Good writing in every genre answers the question SO WHAT? Good writing has purpose, a point, a reason it was written. • The good writer looks for and finds the meanings, the significances, the implications in the subject he or she has chosen. • Sometimes the SO WHAT? is subtle and implicit. Sometimes it's explicitly stated. • Robert Frost wrote "No tears in the writer, no tears in the reader." If you don't find the deep meaning in your life or your characters' lives, your readers won't find meaning in their own. • A good writer often discovers the SO WHAT? through the thinking of the writing process. But even with hard thinking, some topics may not have a SO WHAT? These pieces can be abandoned or put on hold.
